Tanner Glass in Charlotte for Reading Power Play

Tanner Glass and The Moose will be at the Charlotte Library branch at 7pm tonight Wednesday November 28, 2007 as part of the Amerks ‘Reading Power Play.’  This is the last appearance of the first half of the Reading Power Play, the second half will be announced soon for December.

This year, the Amerks have again joined with Monroe County Libraries to assist local public librarians in support of reading and education. The reading campaign, which will run from November to February, will consist of weekly appearances from the Amerks players and The Moose to several libraries in and around the Monroe County area. The visiting player will read to the youth and give a hockey demonstration. Each appearance will also feature a raffle for Amerk memorabilia and an autograph session by the visiting player and The Moose.

The second half of the Reading Power Play, slated from December to February, is a reading program that uses the successful incentive formula employed in summer reading programs. Using the hat trick as a thematic vehicle, youth participants fill out a form for every three books they read, which qualifies them for an entry in the grand prize drawing. The Grand Prize includes dinner, the opportunity to participate in the ceremonial puck drop, and suite tickets to the Amerks’ game on Wednesday, February 20th against the Albany River Rats.
