Battle of the Books

It’s that time again! We will be sponsoring the 5th Annual Peabody Public Library “Battle of the Books”! If you are not familiar with this program, it is an academic competition in which teams will be questioned on their general knowledge of 6 books that have been chosen from different genres. Each team will receive a set of books that will be theirs to keep. Teams may have up to 6 members, with students in grades 3-5, 6-8, or 9-12, and competition will be between teams, not school districts.

Elementary and Middle School teams will compete on Saturday, March 23, while High School teams will compete on Sunday, March 24, so be sure to keep those dates open.

You can download the Registration Form and General Rules, or pick them up at the library. All teams must be registered by Friday, December 7, 2018.

Now available! Download the BOOK LIST.
