The Battle of the Books is a statewide program sponsored by the Alaska Association of School Librarians. The program is intended to broaden reading interests, increase reading comprehension, and promote academic excellence.
Each year a committee of teachers and librarians select book lists and write questions for all grade levels. Students read and discuss the books and compete in teams to answer questions based on the books. Competitions are held at the local, state and district level.
