Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a reading competition for teams of local fifth graders. Each team consists of 3-5 fifth graders. Teams read 15 books chosen by Youth Services librarians and answer questions in a quiz show format.

Battle of the Books 2017 will take place on Saturday, March 11 at 10:00 AM in the Scripps gymnasium. Librarians will ask 50 questions where the answer is always the title and author of one of the Battle books.

The Battle Awards Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, March 14 at 6:30 PM in the Lake Orion High School auditorium and will feature Battle author Alison DeCamp. Copies of My Near-Death Adventures  will be available for purchase that evening.

We want all the students to have fun and enjoy reading great books!
