• The North Carolina Battle of the Books is a fun, statewide reading competition for middle school students. Sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association, BOB aims to promote "a love of reading and familiarity with the best literature for young people." Students read boooks from the current year's Battle of the Books titles each fall and compete in a quiz-bowl-style tournament in the spring to test their knowledge.
