The Battle of the Books (BOB) is a recreational reading program for middle school students. All seventh and eighth grade students are eligible to participate. Students form teams of three and divide the reading list of Iowa Teen Award book titles among the participants on the team. If more than two teams participate, a "building battle" is held in April where the teams answer questions about the books on the reading list. The top two winning teams will participate in the final "battle" at the Bettendorf Public Library against other schools in our area.
