How Battle of the Books Works

Students compete in teams of five lead by an adult coach. They read a variety of books chosen by librarians, and then answer questions about the books in a competition against other local teams.

The top three teams from each library go on to compete against the teams from their “rival” libraries. The team with the

most correct answers becomes the 2018 Battle of the Books Champion!
