Piedmont Battle of the Books 2013-2014

Mrs. Davis is the sponsor for this year's program. Each year 20 books are selected by various teachers and librarians for this program. Every person on the team should try read all 20 of the books. The library supports the program in that mutiple copies of each book are available, and we maintain a special area for these books. Titles for 2013-2014 Piedmont Regional Battle of the Books will be posted after the first week of May. The members are meeting during the first week of May to vote on the selections.
