Foundation is Proud to Support Battle of the Books

The Foundation is proud to support Battle of the Books, now virtual and starting today! Many elementary and middle school students spent most of the school year reading Maryland Black-Eyed Susan nominees in preparation for Battle of the Books, a book-based competition where students compete in teams to answer questions related to the content of the books. Due to COVID-19, the competitions were cancelled. In an effort to celebrate and still recognize the efforts of each and every participating student, the library replaced the battle with a series of virtual events, including virtual author appearances.
