2020-2021 Battle of the Books

Third and Fourth Grade students, as well as Fifth and Sixth grade students are welcome to join - contact Melissa Crooks at melissamcrooks@gmail.com if your student is interested!

Starting February 10, Douglas County Libraries will host three live online quiz shows for any interested students. The top scores from each school will be used to create a running point total. At the end of the three week competition period, the school with the most points per grade level will be crowned the winner of this year’s competition!

There will be prizes for the top scores each week, and the 2 winning schools will get trophies commemorating their win.

Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to participate in Battle of the Books!


Please email Melissa Crooks with any questions.

Battle of the Books is a bowl-style trivia tournament that’s all about books, engaging hundreds of young minds every year. The program is active at Douglas County Libraries’ Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree and Parker locations.

Dozens of teams in grades 3-6 compete against each other in interschool battles and finals tournaments to determine a districtwide champion for all of Douglas County.
