Boston Bruins To Host 17 "When You Read, You Score!" Events This Summer

Kickoff event will be held Thursday at Woburn Public Library

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins will be returning to Massachusetts and New Hampshire libraries this summer to continue their "When You Read, You Score!" On Thursday, June 27, the Bruins will host a kick-off event pairing Bruins Development Camp prospects and local students for games and other reading activities at the Woburn Public Library (45 Pleasant Street, Woburn, MA). 

2019 marks the 10th year the Bruins will partner with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Massachusetts Library System and the fourth year partnering with the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire to support literacy programs and encourage reading among youth across the two states.

Throughout the summer, Bruins Mascot Blades and members of the Bruins promo team will visit libraries across Massachusetts and New Hampshire in an effort to promote youth literacy. At each "When You Read, You Score!" library visit, children and teens will be able to meet and interact with Blades, participate in Bruins arts and crafts, play fun games and have the chance to win official Bruins prizes by competing in hockey trivia.  

To help inspire children and teens to keep reading over the summer, Bruins players, including Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand and Tuukka Rask, have helped libraries develop a summer reading list that also includes librarian picks for the best hockey books.
