Centennial has a Battle of the Books team again!
Battle of the Books, also known at BOB, is a program for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. It is a contest that has as its purpose the encouragement of quality reading. It is offered jointly by Bartlett Public Library, Gail Borden Public Library and Poplar Creek Public Library.
Team members read books from a list of books chosen by librarians. Scores are kept and winners are recognized; however, much emphasis throughout the season is placed on the fun of participation and the satisfaction that comes from reading and from starting and finishing an assignment.
This year’s team is off to a great start after coming in 2nd place at the first meet of the year!
