Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Battle of the Books?
This is a program designed to encourage reading and to recognize young people who like to read.

Who may participate?
All 5th and 6th grade students who live or attend school in Novi are eligible to participate by organizing their own teams of 3-6 students, plus an adult coach.

What happens during the Battle?
Students read from a list of 6 books and then participate in a contest where each team answers questions about those books as a team. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place teams.

How do we enter the Battle?
An online registration form will be available late fall of 2017. The first 12 teams to complete their entry form will be eligible to participate in the Battle.

What does the adult coach do?
Any parent, teacher, or other interested adult over 18 may be a coach. All coaches must attend a kick-off meeting at the Novi Public Library. The list of books to be read will be announced and a set of books for each team distributed. Coaches keep their teams motivated and make sure members are reading their books.
