Racine – The Racine Public Library, 75 Seventh St., is beginning to recruit teams of students in grades 4 – 5 for its annual Battle of the Books competition. Teams can register online from now until December 13. The battles will be held in late winter / early spring of 2014.
Students form teams of up to four members and each team reads the same list of 40 titles, according to youth services librarian Anne Chapman Callaghan. She said teams prepare for battle in their own ways and come together between late February and early April for team-on-team meets.
The Battle of the Books program is aimed at students who truly enjoy reading and are team players. Contact the library’s youth services department at 262-636-9245 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
