  Battle of the Books

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 opens November 1.

We are excited to announce the 2020-2021 book selections! Although we don't know exactly what this year's battle will look like, we are committed to providing a program that encourages reading, teamwork, and friendship. Teams may register here. We will be in communication with you as decisions are made regarding the final battle. Please email Mindy Schafer with any questions.
