2012 Battle of the Books
After months of reading in preparation for the 2012 Battle of the Books, the Montgomery Village Public School team took home bragging rights and the coveted Grand Champion title!
Six local school groups representing Montgomery Village, Maples Independent Country School, Princess Elizabeth, St. Andrew, Parkinson Centennial, and Mono Amaranth public schools were on hand for the 9th Annual Battle of the Books.The Battle of the Books is an annual literary competition held by the Library and local area elementary schools that challenges teams made up of grades 4, 5 and 6 to read books from a list of titles, then compete to see which team can answer the most questions correctly, based on the books read. This year's book list included 30 titles!
Congratulations to Montgomery Village Public School team, and to all of the participants for their efforts, dedication and wonderful team spirit! A big thank you goes out to everyone who pitched in to help make this program a success, including members of the Friends of the Orangeville Public Library for their help on the day of the event; Sonia Close, Gillian Northgrave, Dell Heaney, Ann Johnson, and Jenny Baker. Thanks also to Sandra Card and Lesley Cross for taking on the roles of moderator.
The Battle of the Books was organized by former Orangeville teacher Barbara Ellström and Lesley McGill, Program and Research Coordinator at the Library.Plans are already underway for the 2013 Battle of the Books which will mark the 10th anniversary of this exciting and fun-filled event.
