Battle of the Books

Winter Reading Program

The 2015 Battle of the Books is right around the corner!  We’ll kick off the program on Tuesday, January 13 at 6:30 pm.  Those new to Battle or teams wanting a refresher can stop in for an overview of the program, booktalks of this year’s booklist, and Q & A.

Check out the line-up of programs and Battle dates for 2015.  Get a head start on the reading!  View the 2015 booklist here and stop in the library for copies of the books.  Brochures and sign-up forms are available at the library, or sign up online.

What is Battle of the Books?
It’s a fun trivia competition that tests your book knowledge. Teams of 4-5 participants read the selected Battle books in January and February. At the beginning of March, teams compete in a series of battles to see which team knows the most about the books.

Who can participate?
Adults, teens, and kids (4th grade and up) are all welcome, and teams can be made up of participants of all ages. A team could be a family of four, grandparents and grandchildren, four teen classmates, five book club friends, or other combinations. The booklist includes books that are appropriate for young readers but will appeal to all ages. Families are encouraged to participate together; even children too young for the competition can be included in the fun by acting as team cheerleaders and reading books on similar topics and themes.
