Battle of the Books is a reading competition for teams of local fifth graders. Each team consists of 3, 4, or 5 fifth graders and must have an adult coach. Teams read 14 books chosen by the Youth Services librarians and answer questions in a quiz show format.
Battle of the Books 2014 took place on Saturday, March 15 at 10:00 am in the Scripps gymnasium. Librarians asked 50 questions where the answer was always the title and author of one of the Battle books. Team members worked together to come up with the correct answer. The Battle Awards Ceremony was held on Tuesday, March 18 at 6:30 pm in the Lake Orion High School auditorium. Our guest speaker was Rick Lieder, photographer/illustrator of the Battle Book Step Gently Out by Helen Frost.
