Way to Go Waldo Warriors!

Summer 2017 Battle of the Books results are in and Waldo's first Battle team rocked!!!!!  

This summer, local teens Ashely, Camara, Logan and Tierra read Samurai Rising by Pamela S. Turner, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and The Sun in Also a Star by Nicola Yoon and met weekly to discuss the books selected for this summer's Battle of the Books Program. Then Waldo's inaugural team was put to the test against other library teams District-wide to determine who knew the most trivia about each book.  The actual Battle took place Saturday, July 29th at the Headquarters Library in downtown Gainesville.  It was a difficult match with a wide range of questions.  In the end, the Waldo Warriors came in second place!!  If that wasn't enough, the Warriors also were recognized as  "TheTeam with the Most Spirit!!"  It was a special victory and Waldo staff and patrons are SO very proud of these teens!!

Here are some highlights from the Battle...
