Battle of the Books is designed to encourage a love of reading, teamwork, and to promote an interest in reading a variety of genres. Students from 4th & 5th grades create teams with an adult coach and read a selection of books chosen by the Library. In March, the teams come together for a literary "battle" to test their knowledge of the books. Registration forms are made available at the library in the fall.
