Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey clowns take reading seriously

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

ELLIS & DALLAS COUNTIES - Want to learn what it takes to soar on the flying trapeze or just what goes into those cream pies the clowns throw? 

Then join Kelly, a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Ambassador of Laughter, for some serious fun at the following libraries on Wednesday, June 23.

He’s no class clown, but is certain to add amusement to a special 45-minute circus story-time, which will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn!

The library event is free and open to the public.

For more information on the additional libraries the clowns plan to visit, go to www.Read ingwithRingling.com.

The Ringling Bros. Ambassadors of Laughter will be in town to help kick-off "Reading with Ringling Bros." The library reading program is easy and fun for kids to participate.

The best part is that kids can earn a free circus ticket by simply doing their library reading!

Children from ages 2-12 enroll with the librarian, who will give kids everything to start their library reading.

Kids will even receive clown noses and coloring sheets, too!
