  Battle of the Books

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 for the 2024-2025 Battle of the Books will open in November 2024. Forms will be available at the Library.
