Battle of the Books

What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books is a school-library partnership where local schools put together teams of enthusiastic readers and Niles-Maine librarians pick the books. Teams meet to battle over book quiz questions and a winner is declared after weeks of meeting.

All of the competitors, their families, and their coaches are invited each year to the Battle Awards Ceremony. That’s when the winning school gets their plaque and everyone gets to hear a speech by one of the authors on the Battle book list.
