Battle of the Books (BOB) promotes reading through introducing different genres and new literature in a game show style reading competition for fourth through eighth grade students. Teams of no more than five students are formed and encouraged to read and answer questions based upon eight selected titles. We welcome teams formed by schools as well as individual students who would like to join a library organized team.
New this 2023-2024 year! We are introducing our first ever Middle School competition!
For our sixth through eighth graders, our Middle School BOB is partnering with Portsmouth Public Library (PPL). Both library systems are using the same book list and resources, as well as have a final battle together in late Spring 2024.
REGISTER TODAY! The last day to register is December 11, 2023!
