(Greenville S.C. – December 6, 2012)- Each year Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® arrives at the BI-LO Center for tons of circus fun. Ringling Bros. presents BUILT TO AMAZE, a perfect mix of mirth, marvel and majesty in an imagination equation where the impossible comes to life, is coming to BI-LO Center, Greenville S.C., January 30 – February 3, 2013. (Tickets are on sale now)  To celebrate this spectacular event, Ringling Bros. has partnered with the Greenville, Pickens, Oconee, and Union County Public Library Systems to host the Reading with Ringling Library Reading Program!
The reading program is easy and fun for kids to participate.  The best part is that kids can earn a Ringling Broscircus ticket by simply doing their library reading!  Children from ages 2-12 need to enroll with the librarian, who will then give kids everything they need to start their library reading.  The kids will receive cool bookmarks, clown noses, and activity sheets!  This unique library reading program will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn! 
To launch the program, Ringling Bros. is bringing one of its world famous Ambassadors of Laughter (Clown), to Greenville S.C., December 11th and December 12th 2012.   He will be visiting local children, spreading circus cheer, reading circus books, performing exciting clown gags, and kicking off the Reading with Ringling Program.
