Read five books and get a circus ticket

Children ages 2-12 can earn tickets to the circus by reading five books Sept. 30 through Oct. 18, as Plumb Memorial Library partners with Ringling Brothers.

Called Reading with Ringling Brothers, the offer is limited to the first 100 children.

When youth enroll in the program, they will get a special packet that contains a Reading with Ringling Brothers Reading Progress Card. Every time they read and return a book to Plumb Library’s Children’s Department, their card will be stamped with a special elephant stamp. After receiving their fifth stamp, the card may be redeemed at the Webster Bank Arena box office in Bridgeport for a free children’s ticket.
