Frankfort Library to Host County-Wide Battle of the Books

They’ve read the books, now let the battle begin! Frankfort Community Public Library invites the public to attend the County-Wide Battle of the Books!

The County-Wide Battle of the Books will be held at the Frankfort Library in Room 219 on Thursday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend as teams from each local high school are quizzed on their reading skills.

Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program hosted by local schools. Students create teams and are given a list of books to read. Each high school hosts a quiz competition with questions from the book list. The winning teams from each high school compete at the county-wide competition.

The program organization is led by the Battle of the Books Coordinator, Megan Scott (Clinton Prairie Jr./Sr. High School) with the help of librarians and teachers from Frankfort High School, Frankfort Middle School, Rossville Jr./Sr. High School, Clinton Central Jr. Sr. High School, and Frankfort Library. Teachers choose the reading list, read all the books, and write the questions. This year students read from eleven books encompassing a wide array of genres, including: Sci-fi, mystery, romance, coming-of-age, and auto-biographies. The event is made possible, in part, by Psi Iota Xi who donated funds towards the purchase of books for students. Thank you, also, to Frankfort Greek’s Pizzeria which donated pizza for the students participating in the competition.
