Get Ready for BATTLE!

Teen Battle of the Books returns for 2022!

Battle of the Books is a fun way to show your love of reading and actually earn some great prizes for it! All you need to do is grab up to 4 friends (teams should be 5 people or less) from your designated grade-level and read the list of librarian-chosen books. A trivia competition (and chaos!) will ensue. Keep in mind, you don’t all have to be from the same school to be a team.
