Pirates Tales at the Library!

Pirates Tales

at the library!

The more books you read the more chances you'll have to win.

If you are between the ages of 4-12, you can sign up for Pirates Tales until August 1, 2014 by reading as many books as you want. After August 1, six lucky children from each participating library will be chosen in a random drawing to receive a special storytime with a Pirates celebrity and the Pirate Parrot at PNC Park, along with two (2) tickets to the Pirates game against the Chicago Cubs, on September 14, 2014.

Two ways to enter:

  •     •  Visit your neighborhood library for a Pirates Tales entry form         or print out the form here and return it to your librarian.
  •     •  Enter online

The Pittsburgh Pirates and your local public library are proud to offer this program.
