A meeting of the Pawling Battle of the Books team took place on Tuesday, July 29.
The Battle of the Books is a contest where competing teams of 6th-to-9th grade students answer trivia questions about a selection of eight booksthey read during the summer. The Battle of the Books is a fun, free event that encourages kids to learn about teamwork and healthy competition, and to read some good books they might not be able to encounter in school.
Twenty-four libraries in the Mid-Hudson Library system, including Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Putnam, and Ulster Counties, are sending their teams of middle schoolers to the regional Battle of the Books at Columbia Greene Community College in Hudson, New York on Saturday, September 6. So let’s all wish the best of luck to our Pawling team – go get ‘em, tigers!
