Battle of the Books: We Want YOU!
June 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
If you like books and the thrill of competition, then consider joining one of the Library’s Battle of the Books teams! Interested middle- and high-school students should bring a parent to our informational meeting. All those entering grades 6-9 are eligible to participate on our middle school team, and all those entering grade 9 through leaving 12th are able to participate on our high school team. Battle of the Books (BoB) is a Jeopardy-style trivia competition that involves teens and tweens reading selected books and “battling” other teams from all over the Mid-Hudson Library System for the title of Champion. BoB is a wonderful opportunity for young people to read great books and make new friends. The teams will meet weekly over the summer to discuss books and run mock battles in preparation for the regional battle in September.
