About the Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books program is a valuable and enjoyable way to generate enthusiasm for books and reading among students and promote literacy in schools.

This program was created to stimulate the enjoyment of recreational reading in Grades 4, 5 and 6 by encouraging students to read more widely in authors they already enjoy and to discover new authors.

The 2016 Battle marked the 13th anniversary of this program and it was a huge success. Preparations for the 2017 Battle have begun.

The Greater Sudbury Public Library would like to thank Chapters and Librairie du Centre for their generous sponsorship of the 2014 Battle of the Books and for their continued support over last 13 years. We would also like to thank Xcaliber Trophies for generously providing the medals and trophies awarded during Battle of the Books.
