Regional Battles and Final Battles
Beginning in 2021, we changed the structure of our competitions. Each library team is placed in a pod with other local teams, against whom they compete in a Regional Battle in August. The winners of those battles will go on to the Finals to determine the year’s first, second, and third place winners!
There are more than 24 libraries participating in the Mid-Hudson Library System’s Battle of the Books. To see if your local library participates, visit here. If your library does not participate, contact us and we can tell you how to get involved.
