Read Around the Bases

The Wilmington Sharks are excited to provide elementary and middle school teachers and their students the opportunity to become an All-Star reader and take part in our reading program. "Read Around the Bases" encourages literacy and reading comprehension inside and outside the classroom for traditional and non-traditional K-8 schools.

Read Around the Bases is FREE, turn-key, incentive based and aims to help students discover the joy and rewards of reading. Students work towards reaching HOME by reading 4 books in order to recieve FREE admission to any Sharks game of their choice.

In order to participate, visit the downtown branch of the New Hanover County Regional Library to pick up your bookmark.

For more information, contact Tom Lamont at or call the Sharks front offices at 910-343-5621.
