(WIAT) – Books can open the door to whole new worlds.
They take us to far away places and make us believe that anything is possible, like having magic powers or becoming a professional baseball player for example.
On Saturday night, the Birmingham Barons are going to celebrate the wide world of books by organizing a public library night.
Everybody is invited to join them.
It is an effort to encourage kids to read over the summer.
As a specialty, the first 100 kids who show a library card at the gate will get a free gift.
First pitch against the Jackson Generals is set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
You can find more information on tickets here.
