Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books 2023Logo
Delta Township District Library and Grand Ledge Area District Library are excited to present Battle of the Books 2023!
Our 15th annual program will include engaging reads, fun activities, and friendly competition.

Registration is now closed for the 2023 program. Not participating? You can still check out our 2023 Battle booklist and enjoy the great reads from this year. In addition, all are welcome to attend our Virtual Author Visit with Amanda Foody on February 8 at 6:30 pm! Learn more and register here.

What is Battle of the Books?
It’s a fun trivia competition that tests your book knowledge. Teams of 3-5 participants read the five selected Battle books in January and February. In late February/early 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 (fourth grade & up) are all welcome, and teams can be made up of participants of all ages. Families are encouraged to participate together. No more than five on a team may participate in a battle. It is helpful for all-kid teams to have an adult on their team or acting as a coach/team leader. 

All participants will be rewarded. The winning teams will win Barnes & Noble gift cards.  

Teams will compete in written trivia battles to see who knows the most about the five Battle books.  All teams will participate in the preliminary and semifinal battles. The top teams from each semifinal will earn a spot in the final battle.  

Registration is now closed for the 2023 program. Kickoff kits are available for all registered teams (one per team) to pick up from DTDL (Youth Services desk) or GLADL (Circulation desk) and include copies of the Battle books, activity guides, and more.

The 2023 Battle of the Books is possible due to the generous support of the Friends of the Delta Township District Library.
