At the battles at the end of April or early May, your team will be asked questions about books from the Battle of the Books reading list. The teams with the most points compete in the Grand Battle for a chance to win a trophy and medals.

Congratulations to West Bayfield Elementary School, the winning team in 2014!  St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Elementary School won the silver medal and St. Monica's Catholic Elementary School won the bronze medal.

Special thanks to Domino's Pizza for providing pizza parties for the Grand Battle teams.  20 Bellfarm Rd. 705-726-0230, 411 Huronia Rd. 705-722-5000, Barrie.


Hey kids, Marvin reminds you that you must have an adult with you in the library if you are under 10 years old.
