Battle of the Books

  • Battle of the Books is a quiz bowl style competition sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association (NCSLMA) and held locally by Guilford County Schools Department of Library Media Services.

    Students across the state read books from a list selected by NCSLMA. In March, Guilford County Schools holds a district-wide competition where students answer specific, detailed questions about the books.
