Battle of the Books Interest Meetings [In-person]

  • Calling all 4th and 5th grade readers! We are gearing up for this school year's Battle of the Books (BOB) and we want you to join! BOB is a game-show style reading competition where students are encouraged to read and answer questions based on selected titles. This meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about the books we plan to read this year, the format of the competition, our upcoming BOB programs, and more. We invite school media specialists and teachers who are interested in coaching, as well as 4th and 5th grade students and their parents who would like to know more about BOB.
