2015 Battle of the Books Results

The Battle Results Are In!

We held our 6th Annual Battle of the Books competition and here are the results:

The High Springs Library Branch is this year's winner!

Teens district-wide joined our teams, attended regular meetings throughout the summer, read the 3 selected books (The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo) and competed in our Battle of the Books Event.

This year’s “Battle” took place on Saturday, July 25th at 1 PM.  In addition to the excitement from the challenging competition, this year there was a special guest...author of The Fifth Wave, Rick Yancey!  He spoke to the packed house of participants and other guests before the competition as well as during breaks.  He also posed for photos, signed black backpacks that he supplied to the participants and signed books!

Thanks to all participants, their families, the judges and coaches for making this event such a success!

A special thanks also to Publix for providing refreshments at this event!
