BOB Season Begins!
B-O-B is a type of game show competition featuring books selected by the youth services librarians. Each game involves two or three teams who have read from a list of 30 books.
Questions are asked of each team and points are awarded based on the teams knowledge of the material read.
Here’s an example of a B-O-B question: “In which book does a girl named Dorothy meet a scarecrow, a tin man and a cowardly lion?” The correct answer would be: Wizard of Oz for 2 points and Baum for the third point.
In October there is Murder in the Library for the 4th, 5th and Jr High student participants. November hosts a craft program where teams will create their team signs for the games and in December, there is a craft event where participants will receive a free BOB t-shirt for them to decorate. The games begin in January.
Parents, community members, and teachers are welcome to attend the games – support your readers and enjoy this fast-paced academic competition.
