Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books

The Manitowoc-Calumet Library System’s annual book trivia challenge for grades 7-12


So, what is Battle of the Books?

Well, it is way more than just reading books: it is a competition for some serious bragging rights. Battle of the Books is a system-wide trivia competition among library teams that has been held for 15-plus years.

Each library in the Manitowoc-Calumet System assembles teams of teens hungry for good books who test their knowledge for the chance to win the coveted Battle Trophy Plaque to hang in their library. The tournament always ends with a pizza party for all players — all for reading great books! 

If you are interested in joining the team contact our Teen Associate at mplteen@manitowoc.org starting in May for the upcoming summer.
