Battle of the Books is back!

Kids who love to read! Battle of the Books is a competition for kids in grades 4,5 and 6. How does it work? First, get a team of 3 or 4 people together, come up with a crazy team name & register your team at Carthage Free Library. Then read our list of 20 great books- check our catalog for print and audio versions of the books. Next, get together for practice sessions -they can be fun if you add some pizza and the movie from the book- and talk about the books and what happened in them.
