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 2013 through February 2014.  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. Several of this year’s books are written by Oregon authors or are one of the 2013 Young Readers’ Choice Nominees. Come to the library to find out more about the books and the event!
