Get Fired Up For Literacy

As a way to promote reading, The Mount Laurel Fire Department and the Mount Laurel Library are excited to announce the TWELFTH year of the Get Fired Up for Literacy program! This is a reading contest for all Mount Laurel public school students in grades 1-4. It will begin Wednesday, December 23 and the goal is simple: read, read, read!

There will be four prize winners chosen per school and this will include one student from each grade who reads the most minutes during winter break. Additionally, one grand prize winner will be randomly selected at each school to receive a ride to school in a fire truck! Finally, each student who participates and reads a minimum of 60 minutes will receive a certificate. Note: Previous grand prize winners are not eligible for fire truck rides.

The contest will be entirely virtual this year. To register and keep track of how many minutes you read, click the link below.

The winners will be posted in mid January and the fire truck rides will be arranged shortly thereafter.
