Battling Over Books!

Last Friday night, May 7, the library was abuzz with excitement, anticipation and more than a few nerves as teams of 4th and 5th graders competed in DPPL's annual Battle of the Books (or, as one 4th grader referred to it, "that book fight thing."

Each team of four students competed to correctly answer questions about the eight books selected for this year's program (the answer to each question was the title of one of the books). Competition was stiff to say the least, but everyone had a grand time judging from the noise level! Congratulations to the two teams who tied for first place!

The previous Friday night, April 30, saw teams of 6th - 8th graders competing, many in full team color regalia. Here are the three teams who tied for first place that night. (Watch the slide showing off all participants on our Storytimes & Programs page!)
