Dahntay Jones Helps Pacers Tip Off Summer Reading Program


Indiana Pacers utility wing Dahntay Jones helped promote the Marion County Public Library's Summer reading program by reading to kids at the Indianapolis Children's Museum on Wednesday. As Fox 59 reports, Jones enjoys the opportunity to have an impact on the youth in the community.

"They (the kids) think that sports or fun things are the only important things in life," said Jones, "but reading is very special and very important to their development and for their growth as adults in the future."

I can attest that Jones is not just giving lip service to this cause having seen many a dog-eared book in his locker available for from pre-game reading in the locker room. I also find it interesting that Jones didn't beat cheeks out of Indy for the offseason like many players have in the past.

Jones and some Pacemates tipped off the six-week Indiana Pacers Summer Reading Tour, produced in partnership with the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library's own summer reading program, Stay tuned for more opportunities to have your kids share a book with a Pacers player.
