Sports Reading Club

The Texas Hall of Fame in Waco brings to your attention their "Sports Reading Club."

The introduction reads:
"The Sports Reading Club (SRC) is a unique incentive program designed by the Texas Sports Hall of Fame to encourage elementary through high school students to read. The SRC booklist features Texas athletes and professional teams based in Texas. This program uses a specific interest (sports) to help students, who may not have been otherwise motivated, set reading goals.
The SRC book list focuses on Texas' regional sports heritage. For example, while most school libraries have books on baseball great Babe Ruth, we believe that it is also important that students in Texas learn that Andrew "Rube" Foster, the founder of the Negro National League, was born in Calvert, Texas.

Students who read five books during the school year will earn membership into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame Sports Reading Club. Their membership includes a free admission to the museum, a congratulatory certificate, and their name listed on the Texas Sports Hall of Fame website."
