Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books, 2020

Battle of the Books is a program designed to encourage reading and to give recognition to those who like to read. Team members read from a selected list of books and then participate in a battle where they compete with other teams by answering questions based on the books. Prizes are given to the first, second, and third place winners of the questioning round, as well as to the the three teams with the best costumes.

 

Thank you to the Farmington Friends of the Library for sponsoring this great program!

 

This year’s Battle was on Monday, May 4, at 7 pm. Battle had a new format this year: we went digital! Battle attendees tuned in using Zoom, and team members took turns answering Kahoot quizzes about each of the six books. Kahoot scores were used as tiebreakers as needed.

 

For more details on how this year’s Battle worked, please see the Battle of the Books Fact Sheet.
