Indy Library Black History Reading Campaign Features Prize of Colts Season Tickets!

February 5, 2014

Dwayne AllenChildren and adults who use their Indianapolis Public Library card to check out any book during Black History Month in February will become eligible to win a pair of Indianapolis Colts season tickets courtesy of Colts tight end Dwayne Allen.

The "Super Read Challenge" is a partnership spearheaded by Allen with the Indy Library to encourage the community to read more books, especially those about Black history heroes and the Civil Rights movement. Each time a Library cardholder checks out books throughout February, he or she will be automatically entered for a chance to win a pair of 2014-2015 Colts season tickets. The more books read, the greater the chances of winning.

"Take my challenge and read," said Allen, who has been a supporter of The Indianapolis Public Library since his rookie season in 2012. "Every book counts, and while you're at the Library, check out great books about Black History heroes and the Civil Rights movement to celebrate February's Black History Month."

Visit any of the 23 Indy Library locations to check out materials or register to receive a free Library card with proof of identification. The "Super Read Challenge" ends on February 28. One winner will be drawn electronically from all entries and notified on March 7.
