Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey presents

Clowns take reading seriously at Dallas / Ft Worth Libraries


Want to learn what it takes to soar on the flying trapeze or just what goes into those cream pies that the clowns throw?  Then join Kelly, Slappy and Monday, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Ambassadors of Laughter, for some serious fun at area libraries throughout June and July.  They will be bringing smiles and laughs to kids at more than 80 libraries in the Metroplex.

Kelly, Slappy and Monday are no class clowns, but are certain to add amusement to a special 30-minute circus story time, which will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn! The library event is free and open to the public.  For more information on the libraries the clowns plan to visit, go to


The Ambassadors of Laughter will be traveling throughout the Metroplex to help kick-off “Reading with Ringling Bros!”  The library reading program is easy and fun for kids to participate.  The best part is that kids can earn a free circus ticket by simply doing their library reading!  Children from ages 2-12 enroll with the librarian, who will give kids everything to start their library reading.  For more information, visit

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baileypresents FULLY CHARGED will perform at the American Airlines Center, August 1-12, in Dallas and at Fort Worth Convention Center, August 15-19.
