Atlanta Hawks Check-It-Out Reading Challenge
May 14th~August 26th, 2017

Hoops will lead to whoops this summer at Georgia’s public libraries, as the Atlanta Hawks and GPLS celebrate summer reading with the 13th annual Check-It-Out Reading Challenge (CIORC).

Participants who read during the summer can earn a FREE ticket to see the Atlanta Hawks play! Children enrolled in grades pre-K through 12 in the state of Georgia can participate by having a parent or guardian log on to www.checkitoutreading.com to sign up.

Parents and guardians may register each child in their household for the program. As many as six participating children may attend a Hawks game together when accompanied by at least one adult who has purchased a ticket.
