Get READY to  BATTLE!  Our sixth annual Battle of the Books, a program that aims to celebrate the love of reading and promote good sportsmanship, will run from September 2014 through February 2015.  Students form teams with four members, read books from the list presented below, meet to discuss the books, then come together for the battles. It is a quiz-show format in which teams answer questions about the books. The process includes special drawings, food, and fun. Come to the library to find out more about the books and the event!
