• Battle of the Books

    Club Description
    Battle of the Books is a competition in which students read novels from a list of titles chosen by the North Carolina School Library Media Association. A variety of titles are selected each year including classics, award winners and new releases. The competition takes place in late February/early March each year. Students chosen for the team compete against other WCPSS middle school teams. The questions test their knowledge of the novels and authors. As a club, students participate in reading discussions, games and reviews.
