Battle of the Books


Next year’s middle and high school titles are listed below.  (The entire list is available here if you are curious about elementary title selections.)

Because both the school and public libraries are currently closed due to COVID-19, you will need to use Sora or Hoopla to borrow a digital copy.  Scroll to the bottom of this page to see options for individual titles.
