Interested participants going in to fifth grade through eighth grade and their parent/guardian are invited to learn about the program. The St. Tammany Battle of the Books program is an annual inter-library book trivia competition between teams of 5th-8th graders focused on knowledge of 5 pre-selected novels. Students entering 5th-8th grades in the 2017-2018 school year are eligible to join a team. Teams compete in multiple rounds in a Quiz Bowl-style competition. The Battle is followed by an Award Party. Members of the winning team receive individual trophies and are awarded the official Battle of the Books Championship Trophy for display at the winning Branch Library. Non-scoring awards include Best Sportsmanship, Best Costume, and Best Team Name.
