What's March Into Reading?

In celebration of National Reading Month, Cowpens National Battlefield and the Spartanburg County Public Libraries (SCPL) are introducing a new reading program called March Into Reading! This program includes a booklet and a specially designed patch! The booklet contains a suggested reading list for all ages compiled by librarians, bookmarks, and a certificate. Readers may earn a patch by reading three books from the SCPL. The books must be related to history, nature, wildlife, or outdoor recreation. Visitors may participate by downloading a program booklet online or by obtaining a booklet in-person at Cowpens National Battlefield and SCPL locations.
