Oregon Battle of the Books: Practice! Registration open now
Oregon Battle of the Books is a statewide reading program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries.

Reader teams in third through twelfth grades compete in local and regional battles before moving on to the state tournament in March.
Practice sessions for book warriors in the first division (grades 3-5) will be held at the Cedar Mill Library on January 2 and 3. Registration required. Visit the library or call (503) 644-0043 ext.112 or email Marta at email@example.com. Individuals on the same team should coordinate their registrations before contacting us.
