Battle of the Books

Do you like to flex your intellectual muscle?  Try our Battle of the Books program for 4th-5th and 6th-8th graders.  Students from area schools read 15 books, and then test their knowledge of the books in local and regional competition.  It's lots of fun!

Congratulations to our local 2014 Battle of the Books winners.  J.Blaine Blayton won the 4th/5th grade competition, with Rawls Byrd finishing second and James River, third.   Toano Middle School won a close 6th-8th grade finals against Lois S. Hornsby Middle.   We are proud of all of our Battle of the Books readers and we thank all of the adults who helped make this program a success!
