January - March
Like to read and want some friendly competition? Join a team and have some fun!
All 4th& 5th graders living in Highland Park or attending a school located in District 112 may sign up a team of friends consisting of four to seven players (only five play at any meet).
Any school located within the boundary of District 112 may sponsor Book Match teams. A school may have any number of students on its team. However, only five students may compete at a given match.
Team sponsors are optional. If a team does not have a sponsor one team member should be designated the contact person.
Book Match is a recreational reading program. Teams read from a special book list and match wits with other readers in tournaments.
The Book Match reading list is selected by the Youth Services Department. It contains fifty titles of varying difficulty and genre. The new reading list is available in the Youth Services Department beginning June 1 of each year.
Two to four teams participate in a match. The spokesperson of each team selects a packet of questions as the team arrives. The questions are asked round robin, twelve questions per team. All questions can be answered by the title of a book.
The Book Match list will be available at the Library beginning June 1. Sign up at the Youth Services Department June 1 through November 15. The Book Match season begins in January and ends in April.
All meets are held in the Meeting Room at the Highland Park Public Library.
Meets begin at 3:45.
