Listen to the Indiana Pacers Read Bedtime Stories
This is either the most disturbing or the coolest thing to ever happen in Hoosier sports. Beginning next week, your kids can have a bedtime story read to them by one of the Indiana Pacers.
Starting on April 7 and running through the week of June 9, parents can dial up “Call-a-Pacer” and let their kids listen to members of the Indiana Pacers read them their favorite children’s stories.
The recorded tales will be provided free-of-charge as part of the Indianapolis Public Library’s 24-Hour Call-a-Story line at: 317-275-4444 or 877-275-9007. The Call-a-Pacer program was created to encourage kids to take an interest in reading.
