In the late fall, youth services librarians all over Westchester County decided to plan a special book trivia competition called the Battle of the Books. After many meetings, emails and phone calls, the details are nearly finalized and the Westchester Library System will be holding its first annual Battle of the Books on Saturday, October 18, 2014!
The Somers Library is excited to announce that we will be sending two teams totaling 21 team members to the Battle of the Books!!!!! Each team member will read 5 books chosen for their grade levels and then, in the fall, they will meet with their teams to practice answering questions.
The Friends of the Somers Library has sponsored these teams by purchasing the books for each team member. The Friends will also graciously supply the materials for us to make our team tee shirts. At the competition, there will first be preliminary elimination rounds and double jeopardy style final rounds. At the conclusion of the competition, there will be trophies, prizes, and a whole bunch of fun!
