What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books (BoB) is a book-based trivia contest for middle schoolers in the Mid-Hudson Library System. Teams compete by answering questions based on the 8 books that every participant reads. The team meets bi-weekly in May and June and weekly during July and August.

Who Can Join?
Anyone entering grades 6-9 in Fall 2018 can participate!

Why Should I Participate?
You get to read great books, discover new authors, and make new friends. At our meetings we play games, watch movies, discuss the books, and have a lot of fun! Every team member gets an official BoB team t-shirt to wear to the Final Battle!

Where/When is the Battle?
During the summer we participate in smaller battles with neighboring libraries. The 2018 Middle School Regional Battle will take place on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 9 AM at SUNY Ulster in Stone Ridge.
