Battle of the Books
Thank you to everyone that participated in our 2020 Battle of the Books! We had 20 teams compete in the Battles this year. Thanks to the Grand Ledge Area District Library and the Friends of the Delta Township District Library for sponsoring this program.
Congratulations to the winning team, Literary Ladies, made up of Adelaide Fitton, Angela Fitton, Katie Fitton, Naomi Fitton, and Rebecca Fitton!
There was a tie for second place, and after a tie-breaker, TARR (Angela Spialek, Ragnar Spialek, Rosemary Spialek, and Terry Spialek), took home the second place title with third place going to GL Bookies (Alex Conway, Drew Conway, Jennie Conway, Bonnie Johnson and Heidi Milam). Book Slayers (Diane Constan, Emily Constan, Audrey Fancher, Julianna Fancher, and Grace Hammes) were just a half a point behind in fourth place. Rounding out the top seven teams in the finals were Booked, The Bright Ideas, and Banana Books.
Check back in December 2020 for information about next year’s Battle of the Books.
What is Battle of the of the Books?
It’s a fun trivia competition that tests your book knowledge. Teams of 4-5 participants read the five selected Battle books in January and February. In late February/early March, teams will 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.
The Battle of the Books is possible due to the generous support of the Friends of the Delta Township District Library.
