Are you interested in joining the Cooper Academy Battle of the Books Team for 4th & 5th Grade Students?

Summer greetings from the land of the Library! We are super-excited about many upcoming opportunities for the 2021-2022 school year. One such opportunity is Elementary Battle of the Books!! Do you have a rising 4th or 5th grade student? Enjoy competition? Reading? Edge-of-your-seat-excitement? Then Battle of the Books may be just the thing that has been missing from your life!

North Carolina librarians from across the state work together to put together a list of fresh finds and popular classic stories each year for students to read. Schools form teams, practice in the fall, and then face off in a quiz-bowl-style tournament each spring (where the real fun happens!)

Sound like something you’d like to be a part of? Start by taking a look at this year’s EBOB list.

Want to get a head start on your reading? Copies of this year’s books are conveniently located in the Cooper Academy front office. Stop by and check out a copy (or two) during school hours. Or visit the local public library to find copies (they’re pretty awesome too!)
