A dozen teams from six elementary schools will square off in a literary showcase on Saturday, June 4. The Vancouver Public Schools Battle of the Books will take place in the Community Room at the Vancouver Community Library branch of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library from 10:15 a.m. to noon. The library is located at 901 C St.
The Jeopardy-style game will have students buzzing to answer questions based on 10 books from a variety of genres.
Participating elementary schools include Eisenhower, Felida, Hazel Dell, Marshall, Ogden and Salmon Creek. Teams from each school previously faced off in school-wide competitions in order to advance to the June 4 event.
Jacquelyn Keith, librarian at Fort Vancouver Regional Library, organizes the event with assistance from teacher librarians at each of the participating schools.
NOTE: This event is not open to the public because of space constraints.
