Battle of the Books

Winter Reading Program

The 2015 Battle of the Books is underway!

Our next Battle program is the Preliminary Battle on Thursday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m.  All teams will compete in this written battle to see who knows the most about the five battle books.  Please try and arrive at the library 15 minutes early so we can get the battle started on time.  If you haven’t already, be sure to review the Battle rules!

Check out our Hints & Tips page for help preparing for the battles.  View the line-up of programs and Battle dates for 2015.  See the 2015 booklist here and stop in the library for copies of the books.

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.
