Battle of the Books: Teen Edition
How can you encourage young people to read voraciously? Inject some competition into their reading! Join the Director, Benjamin Reid, and Public Services Librarian, Carol Opalka, from Huron Public Library for a webinar on the Erie County Libraries Battle of the Books. Implemented by Reid and Erie County Teen Librarians in 2015, this successful, literary spectator sport is now a highlight of the fall programming schedule. Learn about the rules of the game, time and personnel needed to prepare for the battles, and ways to market this program and build your own team. Our library does the program for grades 4-8 but it can easily be adjusted if you’d like to do this for High School students. The Battle of the Books is a perfect way to collaborate with local libraries and share a love of great books…down to every last detail.
