2018-2019 Battle of the Books
Get READY TO BATTLE!!! Our twelfth annual Battle of the Books, a program that aims to celebrate the love of reading and promote good sportsmanship, will run from September 2018 through March 2019. Students form teams with four members, read books from the list presented below, meet to discuss the books, then come together for the battles. It is a quiz-show format in which teams answer questions about the books. The process includes special drawings, food, and fun. The winning team will represent Briggs at the OASL (Oregon Association of School Libraries) Regional Tournament. Come to the library to find out more about the books and the event!
