Program Type: Books & Writing
Age Group: School Age

Event Description

If you are in grades 5 or 6 and love to read, come and join our sixth annual after school Battle of the Books Club!  Everyone is invited to join and read these three books: Restart by Gordon Korman, Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race by Chris Grabenstein, and Stef Soto, Taco Queen by Jennifer Torres. We’ll have three practice sessions when we’ll eat a lot of snacks and answer trivia questions based upon these three books. Then for the final week, we’ll break up into teams and compete against each other in a “Battle of the Books”!

While you will stay after school to participate in the program, there will be no late bus available and you will need to provide your own transportation home at 4:15pm. Register and pick up a set of books and a practice schedule at the Longwood Public Library beginning November 1. The snacks provided may not be suitable for those with food allergies.
