Marlins Youth Literary Initiative

The Morehead City Marlins are proud to announce a partnership with both the Morehead City Library and the Carteret County Public Library System! As each library system rolls out their respective summer reading programs, the Marlins will work in tandem to build awareness and encourage families to enjoy reading together this summer!

We understand how difficult it can be to engage students in school work throughout the summer months (especially with all of the Marlins games to attend!), but it is critical that our young students continue to grow and build upon what they have learned over the school year. Each library’s summer reading program is designed to build this continuity and the hope is that this Marlins partnership will help guide young readers to reach their goals.

Along with the many fun prizes that each library will provide for students who attain their reading goals throughout the summer, a Morehead City Marlins Dive Tag will be awarded to each student who meets their first reading goal! Simply present this Dive Tag at the Marlins Ticket Office on game day and receive entry into any Marlins home game throughout the 2023 season for FREE!

The Marlins Youth Literary Initiative will kick off in 2023, but will only continue to grow with the support of the community! Help spread the word as we slide into summer reading together!
