Battle of the Books is a book-based trivia tournament for Westchester youth pitting library against library!
The program’s goals are to promote a love of reading, to expose students to titles and authors they might not encounter otherwise, to encourage them to think of their local library as a resource for entertainment, and inspire teamwork and good sportsmanship in an atmosphere of friendly competition. Team members will read five librarian-selected titles, attend practice sessions to answer trivia questions, and represent our library at the competition scheduled for October 20, 2018 at Hendrick Hudson High School. Open to those in grades 4 - 6 and grades 7 – 10 in September of the upcoming school year. Come hear what it’s all about from our Children’s and Teen Librarian and those who battled last year!
