The book list for the 2019-2020 Battle of the Books is ready!

Battle of the Books is upon us! We have the new reading list for the 2019 - 2020 Battle of the Books Competition as well as 2 copies of each book on this list.

For those not familiar with “Battle of the Books”, it is a competition that requires teams of four students, from grades 4 through 6 to read books from the reading list that I have attached. During the competition, the teams are asked questions about the books on the list. They then must respond with the correct title and author of the book. Each team will have three or four students and a coach. Parents, teachers, or any adult can volunteer to be a coach. The local matches will be held at the end of April 2018 at the Massena Public Library. The winner will then go on to a competition in Gouverneur to compete against winners from other North Country Library System Libraries. Exact dates are to be determined. In addition we will also be hosting a team poster decorating day and a t-shirt decorating day at a meet the teams event. Once teams have registered we will send out a survey for best dates and times for this event.
