Time to Make Battle of the Books Teams

September 27, 2010

Story TimeInformation from Holy Cross Librarian Anne Anderson:

Battle of the Books is a competition for fourth through sixth grades.  The ‘battles’ will take place at the end of February or beginning of March, hopefully at Barnes & Noble again this year. Students compete in teams of four to six members. The book list for this year’s Battle of the Books is printed below.
