Oregon Battle of the Books, early titles for 2015-2016

Two sets of books shelved between bookends, their spines facing outward. Tented signs in front of them designate the third-to-fifth grade divisions and sixth-to-eighth grade divisions, Oregon Battle of the Books. To the left, a green sign with the logo for Oregon Battle of the Books logo is propped in a wire stand.

Oregon Battle of the Books! At Bellview Elementary School​ library, students are already interested in reading next year’s selections. And fifth-graders anticipate the books they will read in Ashland Middle School’s 6-to-8 division.
