Twenty-nine children participated in the Los Alamos County Library’s annual elementary school “Battle of the Books” competition March 28.
“Battle of the Books” is a statewide program in which children are invited to read books from a designated list of recommended titles selected by librarians across the state and then participate in a competition testing their knowledge of the material.
The competition encourages children to read quality literature from a variety of genres and learn how to compete as a team in a quiz-bowl format.
The winning elementary team includes Cinlong Huang, Audrey Nolen, Kezia Tripp, Andrew Watson, Anna Batista, A.J. McPherson and Olivia Koo who each received a copy of the book Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger.
Fake Mustache is a selected title for the 2015 Battle of the Books. Support for this program, including the prizes and refreshments, is generously provided by the Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries.
For more information about how you or your children can participate in the 2015 “Battle of the Books”, contact the Library’s Youth Services at 505.662.8258.
