Team registrations for the 2012 Battle of the Books begin this Sunday, March 11. Phone or visit the Youth Services Desk to sign up your child's team of three or four participants to compete either on Friday, April 27 (6th - 8th graders) or Friday, May 4 (4th - 5th graders). Both competitions will be held from 6:45 - 8 p.m. in Meeting Rooms B/C.
What do we need for registration? The names of the children participating, their school and grade, phone number, and an email address. Books will be available for check-out beginning Sunday, March 11 as well.
If your children have participated in previous years, you'll know that these events are always guaranteed to be lots of fun -- for participants and observers. We've selected some great titles this year, and for the first time many of the books are available to be downloaded to your e-reader through the library's catalog. In addition, we have two Kindle e-readers loaded with all eight of the 6th - 8th grade titles. They may be checked out for four weeks.
