battle of the books

Teens, if you like to read, play games, and eat pizza, grab your friends, sign up at the Melrose Public Library, and start reading.

Students may sign up to participate in The Battle of the Books in groups or individually. The Battle, in which teams compete to see who remembers the most about the books they have read, will be Monday, March 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Melrose library.

The titles for the program this year are "The Outsiders" by S. E. Hinton, "Princess Bride" by William Goldman, and "Hoot" by Carl Hiassen. Pizza and pop will be provided for all participants after the Battle. Preregistration is required and ends Feb. 27.

Sponsored by the Melrose Friends of the Library.
