Oregon Battle of the Books regionals

One of the definite highlights to my week was volunteering on Saturday as Bellview Elementary School hosted regional competitions for Oregon Battle of the Books. In Bellview library, I do my best to promote the reading of books and it was interesting to see the teams quizzed upon their knowledge of this year’s titles. For me, the value is less upon the competitive nature of the tournaments and more upon hopefully instilling in students an enthusiasm for the books. It's great to see students return an OBOB title — the first in an author’s series — and witness their interest in, their captivation by the story as they seek the series’ later volumes.
