• The purpose of Battle of the Books is to encourage reading in all students. The quiz show format creates fun and excitement in reading. Students read books from the NC Elementary Battle of the Books list and the club is open to 4th and 5th graders.  Students will be put in teams based on how many books they have read and how they perform on a test about the books taken near the end of the year.  The teams will be asked questions about the books and students will need to tell the book that the question came from and the author’s name.  The club will meet during the school day to practice and will compete in June.  In order for interested students to be prepared, we have the list of books that will be used during Battle of the Books.  Books are available at the Timber Drive library media center and at the public library.  If you have questions, please contact the library media center, Ms. Waller at 773-9500 ext. 21302.
