Battle of the Books

What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books is a trivia based competition in which all the questions are drawn from a list of 20 predetermined books. It is coordinated and sponsored by Eisenhower Public Library. Pennoyer students compete as a team against other local schools to score the most points for correct answers over a 5 week period.  Points are cumulative so each week is a chance to move up in the rankings!

Who Can Join?

Any students in grades 4-6.
