Battle of the Books - 2014-2015


Information databases

Be a part of the book battle of the year! Fifth and sixth grade students will be teamed in groups of three to compete and test their memories in three exciting school-wide competitions during the 2014-2015 school year.

Team members will be assigned 4 different books to read for each competition. The highest scoring team from each school will represent their classmates at the Chandler Public Library System’s District Semifinals. The top 3 scoring teams from each of the three Semifinals will compete in the District/City Finale.

The 3 top teams that win at the City level will go on to compete with other cities in the Regional Battle between Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Higley, and Queen Creek.

Don't miss the fun and excitement! To sign up, contact your school librarian.
