Middle School Battle Club!
Calling all Middle Schoolers!! Battle Club needs you!
(High School? Check this out!)
The most fun you will ever have with books! The Battle of the Books helps teens keep up reading skills over the summer, and offers them a shot at bragging rights for an intellectual competition spanning the entire Hudson Valley.
In Battle Club, teens entering grades 6-9 team up to compete in trivia games based on a selection of Battle Books. Teens have from now until the competition in September to read any or all of the selected Battle Books. Click here to see the book list.
During the summer our team will meet, party, and have practice battles to prepare for the final Battle of the Books, where we’ll compete against other libraries from across the Hudson Valley. There is a whole lot of fun and reading ahead of us!
Joining the Pawling Team!
The team needs YOU!
To join up, fill out the Online Registration Form or Print it out and bring it to the library. Once you’re signed up, you can start borrowing from our special collection of Battle Books. These books are not available to the general public, and they’re kept behind the Circulation Desk, so you have to ask for them. You can take out up to two books at a time, and don’t be afraid to re-read these Battle Books to get ready for the final showdown at the Battle of the Books.
