From the Glendora Public Library:
The 6th annual “Battle of the Books” will take place on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 6 p.m. in the Bidwell Forum. “Battle of the Books" is a trivia competition for teens in grades 6 to 12. The youth have signed up in three person teams to compete for the winning title. Team members have been working together to prepare for the variety of questions they are sure to be asked by answering questions related to these books: Artemis Fowlby Eoin Colfer; Schooled by Gordon Korman and The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt.
Senior Librarian of Youth Services, Cindy Romero said, “The goal for the “Battle of the Books” is to promote recreational reading, to build reading skills and comprehension and to encourage team building skills in our youth. “Battle of the Books” is an exciting event full of fun, laughter and knowledge. Come to the event on October 10 to cheer on your favorite team and learn more about these books.”
Library Director, Robin Weed-Brown said, “It takes help from all of the Glendora community for the library to be able to offer all of the wonderful programs and events that we do. My deepest thanks go out to generous donations from the Glendora Rotary and the GPL Friends Foundation who help make “Battle of the Books” event happen.”
The “Battle of the Books” is free to the public and participants and will be held in the Bidwell Forum at the Glendora Public Library, 140 S. Glendora Ave. For more information, call (626) 852-4891.
