Celebrate Reading at The Joe

Celebrate Reading at The Joe

Join the library for a fun night of baseball, and help celebrate reading at the Charleston RiverDogs game against the Rome Braves on Sunday, August 3. The game is at 5:05 p.m. with gates opening at 4 p.m. And, kids under age 13 get a free meal.
Thousands of RiverDogs tickets are being awarded to area residents who participate in Charleston County Public Library's 2014 Summer Reading Program. But, if you didn't get a ticket and still want to join the festivities, visit the RiverDogs website to purchase tickets or get your tickets at the gates.
This is a great opportunity to bring the whole family, enjoy a great evening of baseball and show your support for reading and literacy in Charleston County.
