Battle of the Books
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 2020 booklist has been announced and copies of the books are available to borrow from both DTDL and GLADL. Also check out the list of 2020 programs and battle dates. Already have a team? Online registration is now open! The deadline to register is January 26, 2020.
It’s Battle of the Books time and a buzz of excitement is in the air! Notice something different? We have a new logo for our 2020 program. All participants will receive a free t-shirt this year as a prize to celebrate our new look. Join the hive!
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.
