Mid-Hudson Battle of the Books encourages a community of engaged middle-school-aged readers in our five-county region by introducing them to great books, authors, and their fellow readers in an atmosphere of friendly competition and good sportsmanship.

Read eight books and answer questions about them in trivia battle against other teams. The summer program culminates with a regional battles on September 8 at Ulster County Community College. Our team will meet once a week for practice.

    Kit includes locally made gingerbread house for a fun at-home activity.

    The library and Sunflour bakery have partnered to take family bonding time to the next level. These gingerbread kits include a gingerbread house, plus everything you'll need to put together and decorate your creation. Each kit comes with extension activities, like gingerbread MadLibs.

    Due to demand, we are currently limiting kits to one per family.

    Teens and tweens 10-18 can also join our discord server, where the group will chat while putting together their kits or other other activities together.

    Kits must be picked up from the library during our regular operating hours, and a staff member will notify you when your kit is ready for pickup. Please keep holiday closures and COVID protocols in mind.
