Summer Reading Program

Each season, the Astros step to the plate to reward students for their scholastic achievements during the summer months. If kids are spending their time reading, we know they are exploring many wonderful adventures, becoming better citizens, and staying away from trouble. That's why we are excited to work with area-wide registered libraries to reward students with free Astros tickets.

Registration for the Summer Reading program is closed. Libraries may register from mid-March through late April. For questions about redeeming your Summer Reading ticket coupon, call the Astros Ticket Office at 713-259-8500. For more information or questions about the Summer Reading program, contact the Astros Community Relations department at 713-259-8000.
