The 4th and 5th graders of the area have just started reading their Battle of the Books titles in preparation for the face-off between schools later this spring. Jealous that the kids get to have all the fun? We have the solution: a battle of the books program just for adults!
The Auburn Hills Public Library in partnership with the Orion Township Public Library and the Clarkston Independence District Library will hold its first Adult Battle of the Books program on Thursday, April 16 from 6:30-8:30pm at the C-Pub in Canterbury Village. Teams will read four books and participate in a trivia tournament covering the titles.
What is Battle of the Books?
Battle of the Books is a book trivia competition between teams of people. Each team has several months to read and study 4 books, then they go head-to-head to answer trivia questions from those books. Whoever has the most correct answers at the end of the rounds will be declared the winner and take home a prize!
How does it work?
• Teams must register through the Orion Township Public Library on their website here.
• Teams must be between 2-6 people (including the Team Captain), aged 18 and up.
• The person registering will be the designated Team Captain and responsible for communication between their team and the library as well as keeping the team motivated and encouraged.
• We will place individuals on teams if needed but placement cannot be guaranteed.
What are the books?
If you want to read the books digitally, you can also find many of them on Overdrive.
So, grab some friends, check out some books, and start your 2020 off with some good books and light competition!Return to Blog
