Battle of the Books!

Oh So Ossining getting ready to do battle

Sofia, Samantha, Ruby, Kiran, Shania, Isabelle, Thomas, Rohan, Tristan, Sola, David

On Saturday, October 15, we participated in the 3rd annual Westchester Battle of the Books tournament. Each team member had to read (and reread) all five books chosen by the BOB committee. We began meeting in July, and our practices each week consisted of fun and games and at least one round of practice with our buzzers, which were so generously donated by the Friends of the Library.


Our team getting silly
