Reading with Ringling Bros. at Houston County Public Libraries


Can anyone tell me what’s better than seeing the wonder of talented tigers and the amazing tricks of a well-trained elephant? What about experienced trapeze artists and hilarious clown antics? Hmmm….the only thing I can think of that’s better is….

Doing this all for free!

That’s right, folks – the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to the Macon Centreplex, and the library has your child’s free ticket! This particular show boasts of an all-new Fully Charged Gold Edition of the circus…basically, it’s a never-before-seen program that is sure to have your whole family saying “wow, did you see that?”

So, where does this whole “free” business come in? Well, all 3 Houston County Public Libraries are participating in the Reading for Ringling Bros. program that will allow your child to simply earn his or her way into the circus! All you have to do is come to the library, sign up for the program, and receive a reward club card. Your child will then be required to read a maximum 5 books on his or her reading level and bring their club card back to the library to receive a stamp for each book read. Once the club card is filled with 5 stamps, you may take it to the Macon Coliseum box office to exchange it for a circus pass! G

The basic rules for the program are as follows:

  • The program is for children ages 2-12.
  • The reading reward club card can be exchanged for either the Macon showing on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 7 PM or Friday, February 1, 2013 at 7 PM.
  • Up to a $20 value.
  • 1 adult ticket must be purchased for every 3 per-child club cards presented.

The program will start at all Houston County Public Library branches on Friday, December 21, 2012. You may exchange your completed reading ticket for a circus pass anytime between now and show time.

We hope this program will be fun for you and your kids, and look forward to seeing your reading progress!

For complete rules or more information, feel free to contact your local library branch.
