Team meeting and practice for the Middle School Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books is a fun competition between libraries in the Mid-Hudson Library System. Teams read the same books and compete against each other in a round robin style trivia competition. This year the books for the Middle School Team are: Doll Bones by Holly Black, It Ain’t so Awful, Falafel by Firoozeh Dumas, Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan, First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Perez, Super Max and the Mystery of Thornwood's Revenge by Susan Vaught, and Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk.

On July 24 we will meet at the Patterson Library to practice battling against them, and on August 7 other teams will join us at the Pawling Library to 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.
