Battle of the Books

Douglas County Libraries’ Battle of the Books program started in the 2008-2009 school year. It has been a rousing success ever since! Each school that participates has a 3/4 grade team and a 5/6 grade team. The students read 10 books from a set list. The teams compete against each other in inter-school battles and then a bracket-style tournament of 8 teams to determine the winner for the branch. After the final branch battles, the winning teams move onto a district battle to determine the winners for all of Douglas County.
