Enjoy Baseball & Books with the Hickory Crawdads

Published: June 24, 2021

If you’re participating in the Catawba County Library’s Summer Learning program – and you’ve hit the halfway mark of the reading challenge – you can claim a big reward for your efforts!

Kid and teen readers who have logged at least 300 minutes in the Beanstack app (or submitted their paper reading logs at the library) can come to any branch to get a voucher for the Hickory Crawdads match-up against the Asheville Tourists at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 29.

The game is free with your voucher, but you must redeem it for a ticket at the Crawdads box office beforehand. The voucher is valid for one of the library’s reading reward days on either June 29 or July 28.

If you weren’t able to complete 300 minutes by June 29, you’ll have another shot at earning a game-day voucher if you log your reading minutes by Wednesday, July 28. That evening, the Crawdads will take on the Greenville Drive.

Both games take place at L.P. Frans Stadium at 2500 Clement Blvd NW in Hickory.

As an added bonus, the Library to Go will be set up at the entrance to the stadium prior to the Crawdads games on June 29, July 28, August 18, and September 10. Stop by to explore, check out books, learn about upcoming library programs, and even collect prizes you’ve earned for completing Summer Learning reading challenges.
