In conjunction with the Connecticut Library Consortium and Central Connecticut State University, the Rock Cats' “Reading Books In Summer” program promotes the importance of literacy for children ages 5 to 12. Children who join and successfully complete the summer reading program at their library are rewarded with a voucher redeemable for a Rock Cats' reserved seat to the Summer Reading Recognition game.
Public libraries throughout Connecticut participate each year. Rocky the Rock Cat also attended the Smith Library's end-of-summer celebration.
