• Battle of the Books

    The Battle of the Books is an exciting reading enrichment program the Baldwin Public Library sponsors through the Birmingham School District. Fourth- and fifth-grade students from all Birmingham elementary schools are invited to participate in a challenging yet fun book battle that encourages reading and a deep understanding of books of varying genres. After reading a select number of titles, students are invited to battle against other teams and answer detailed questions on all the books covered. This will take virtually again this year.
