Battle of the Books at the Library
Apr. 15, 2017
The second annual Battle of the Books will take place at the library at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 29.
Students from local schools will compete in a trivia contest to see who has the most knowledge of the current Bluestem Award books. The Illinois School Library Media Association established the Bluestem Award in 2008 to call attention to books for children at third through fifth grade reading levels which had not previously been served by the Monarch and Rebecca Caudill award titles.
Battle of the Books draws its participants from classrooms at Meadow Ridge, Liberty and High Point schools this year. Students have pre-read the Bluestem award winning books from the 2016/2017 school year list, and will be prepared to answer questions about them as fast as they can.
The Orland Park Public Library is located at 14921 Ravinia Avenue in Orland Park, IL 60462. Hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
