Schools teach children to read and Libraries promote reading by offering free literature. These two institutions will unite once again to launch 2018’s”Battle of the Books”, a game show style reading competition between 5th grade students.
Any 5th grade student can form a BOB team. Teams are limited to a maximum of 5 students, one of which must be a resident of the city in which they are competing. After the students form teams, they must read from a list of ten preselected books of different genres, and compete by answering questions regarding those books. BOB battles will take place during the month of February 2018.
