Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books is a contest that has as its purpose the encouragement of quality reading. It is offered jointly by Bartlett Public Library, Gail Borden Public Library, and Poplar Creek Public Library. Team members read books from a list of books chosen by librarians. Scores are kept and winners are recognized; however, much emphasis throughout the season is placed on the fun of participation and the satisfaction that comes from reading and from starting and finishing an assignment. Battle of the Books is for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.
