Reimbursements and Donations

Reimbursements: As a member of Mid-Hudson Battle of the Books, you may occasionally need to purchase items or materials as part of your committee role. However, you will never be expected to make these purchases fully on your own–any purchases made for Battle of the Books will be fully reimbursed! All you need to do is fill out the form here (please be as detailed as possible!), attach your receipts or order confirmations, and send the form to Jenn at Patterson through the MHLS courier. Please allow 2-3 weeks for reimbursement checks to come through.

Donations: Battle of the Books has always operated on the generosity of donors to offer our teams a totally expense-free program; however, as we grow, so do our needs. Each year we request that each participating library make a donation to the program in order to keep us running and growing. Any donation amount is appreciated, and the executive board recommends donations of $25. Donation checks should be made out to the Patterson Library, and sent there (Attn: Jenn Gay) through the MHLS courier.

Please visit our Reimbursements and Deposits page to download the form!

We are looking to update our participating libraries lists on both the Middle School program page and the High School program page.

Please fill out this participating libraries form as soon as possible. This form can also be used when there is a change in staffing or contact information.

Thank you for helping us keep our website and participating libraries lists up-to-date.

Call for BOB Manual Task Force members

We are at the verge of the 14th year of the Middle School Battle of the Books program and the third year of the High School program. The program has undergone many changes in these years and continues to grow! In order to be sure the program can continue into the future, we need a manual that will describe all of the procedures, guidelines and the mission of the program.

The manual will be a big project but the executive board would like to have it in place by the end of this Battle of the Books year. In order to strategize the best way to produce this manual and it’s contents,¬†we would like to have a four-member task force. This group would meet as needed and ultimately assist in producing the manual. Ideally, the first meeting could be in November.

If you would like to be a part of this task force, please let me know by Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017.

Thank you!

Maureen McGrath
Mid-Hudson Battle of the Books Executive Chairperson
