Southern Burlington County NAACP and Mount Laurel Library are pleased to announce The Second Annual Black History Month Reading Contest, a literacy initiative that celebrates the rich heritage, contributions, and accomplishments of African Americans.

Children in grades K-4 are invited to participate in our Black History Month Reading Contest. Simply read any book written by an African American author or about Black history or culture. Each book read will count as an entry to win a grand prize raffle drawing! Read more books and increase your chances to win big.

All participants will receive a Reading Certificate and bookmark. One lucky Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected to receive a Kindle Fire loaded with a selected ebook, courtesy of Southern Burlington County NAACP.

During February, track your books on the Library’s website or pick-up a paper reading log. A valid Mount Laurel Library card is required to participate. The contest runs from Saturday, February 1 - Friday, February 28. The grand prize winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 4.
