BPL Partners with Birmingham Civil Rights Monument for “Ranger Reads” Program



Want to see National Park Rangers recite children’s books about the civil rights movement? Then take advantage of “Ranger Reads,” a partnership between the Birmingham Public Library and the Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument. 

In commemoration of Black History Month, the “Ranger Reads” program will feature a National Park Ranger reading a children’s book specific to civil rights history or the legacy of the civil rights movement. These programs are appropriate for children of all ages, with a particular focus on elementary education.

Teachers are welcome to share these programs in their classroom, and the general public is encouraged to join. Readings began on February 3 and will be shared on Birmingham Public Library and Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument Facebook pages every Wednesday in February at 11 a.m. Central.

The last three programs will be February 10, February 17, and February 24. 

For more information, email Kathryn_Gardiner@nps.gov or Bessie.Miller@cobpl.org. 

“Ranger Read” is a part of nearly 20 programs and activities, mostly virtual, that BPL is hosting during February as part of its celebration of Black History Month.
