On June 1, Vicksburg National Military Park, the Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library, and the Friends of Vicksburg National Military Park and Campaign kicked-off the new Reading Rangers program.

The program encourages young readers to explore history, nature, outdoor recreation, and other topics related to our National Parks. If they complete 500 minutes of reading related to these topics, they can earn a t-shirt, a certificate, and a patch. Reading logs can be picked up at the park’s Visitor Center and the public library. Once they achieve 500 minutes of reading, young readers can then return the log to one of those locations to claim their t-shirt, patch, and certificate.

The Reading Rangers programing is being introduced in conjunction with the public library’s “Reading on the River” summer learning program. The public library will have a display of recommended books.

The Reading Ranger program is free.

The Friends of Vicksburg National Military Park and Campaign is funding the t-shirts and patches.
