Each year, the Harrisonburg Turks partner with Massanutten Regional Library in their summer reading program through a variety of ways. Tuesday, several Turks players, Joe Napolitano (Wake Forest), Thomas Smith (Georgia Tech), and Mike Warren (Texas San Antonio) read to close to 50 children and their parents at the annual “Read With the Turks” morning in the Children’s Department.
This visit came on the heels of last Friday’s MRL FREE FRIDAY NIGHT at the Turks game where all children 0-17 wearing their MRL reading wrist band got in FREE as guests of the Turks.
The Turks also provide a free game ticket to children every time they read 5 books in an effort to help promote reading during their summer vacation.
The Turks are proud to be a member of the Massanutten Regional Library partnership and hope to inspire a new generation of children interested in literature.
