Battle of the Books

An Annual Reading Competition

  • This year's list for Battle of the Books is now ready!  The library has several copies of each of these books on order and will process them for check out as soon as they arrive.  Students who wish to try out for this year's BOB team should start reading the 8 required books and plan for tryouts in January. Once the team is announced, we will start meeting to practice and prepare for the competition in the spring.  Last year, the City-County Battle of the Books Invitational Tournament allowed a maximum of 15 students per school team.  That number could be lower depending on numbers registered by other competing schools.

    This year's books are:
