All tweens and teens entering grades 6-9 in September 2015 are invited to join the Edge team for the Battle of the Books competition! Teams from libraries throughout Westchester will compete by answering trivia questions based on five different books. Participants will read the pre-selected books over the summer, attend team meetings, and compete (as a team) in the Westchester Library System Battle of the Books tournament. The tournament takes place on October 17, 2015, at Ossining High School.
The first meeting takes place on June 23 at 4 p.m. in The Edge Media Lab. We will be discussing Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt and working on practice questions. It is highly recommended that participants read the book before attending, but this meeting is open to anyone interested in joining the Edge team.
Our Battle of the Books team meets again on Thursday, July 9 at 4 p.m.
