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 tems from each semifinal will earn a spot in the final battle.  

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