Battle of the Books culminates on March 16

Are you ready to read? Battle of the Books, a year-long collaborative project between NOLS and eleven schools from around Clallam County, comes to a close with a team competition at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 16, at the Port Angeles Library 2210 S. Peabody St.

All students participating in the event must check-in at the Carver Meeting Room by 6:10 p.m.

For five months, library staff visited fourth-grade classrooms and facilitated book club discussions in Sequim, Port Angeles, Joyce, Forks and La Push, and hosted a monthly meeting for homeschooled students. Participating students received free copies of the books read throughout the year and a T-shirt featuring original artwork by a participating student.
