We are battling...with book reading that is! Here's how it works: YOU CAN DOWNLOAD AN INFORMATION SHEET HERE!
- Read 5 pre-selected book titles between June 22 and August 13 (books available via Hoopla/Overdrive/Libby/library catalog).
- Form a family battle team (up to 10 people - you can have multiple families on a team, just not more than 10 people in total).
- Designate a team captain.
- REGISTER for the Battle of the Books, and a Zoom link will be emailed prior to the event.
- Join us on Zoom Video on Friday, August 14 @ 6:30 pm to battle with other families!
- Questions will be trivia-style, and your team will have time after each question to discuss the answer.
- Visit the Battle of the Books website for complete information.
