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. Finally, you'll compete against other local teams, answering questions about the books, in May 2017. Winning team goes on to compete in the Regional Battle of the Books against other libraries!
