Battle of the Books!

6th-8th graders, we're looking for you!

Monday, August 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 is our annual Battle of the Books, and we need kids entering 6th-8th grades to participate!

Here's how it works: You and your team of three others have to read all of the Rebecca Caudill nominee books. That's a total of 20 books, which is about 5 per person. At the Battle, each team will have to answer questions about these books to see which team knows the most! The answers to the questions are always the title of the book. For example, you might be asked, "In what book does the main character find a dragon egg?" The answer to that one would be "Eragon!" If you know the author too (Christopher Paolini), you get an extra point!

We have prizes at the end and pizza for everyone--you'll have a great time! If you're interested, call the library at (708) 474-2447 ASAP so we can get you set up with a team. Or if you and your friends are interested, make a team of four and call us! The more, the merrier!
