The Delta Township District Library is excited to be hosting our 12th annual Battle of the Books. Again this year we are partnering with the Grand Ledge Area District Library to bring you one great reading program for both communities.
The official kick-off for the 2020 Battle of the Books is Monday, January 13 at 6:30 pm at the Delta Township District Library. Come to learn more about Battle of the Books, including booktalks of this year’s booklist, an overview of the program, and Q & A.

What is Battle 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.
