• What is BOB (Battle of the Books)? 

    Battle of the Books is an extracurricular program sponsored by the NCSLMA (North Carolina School Library Media Association). Students at participating schools read books from lists established by the state Battle of the Books committee and then compete in quiz-bowl-style tournaments to test their knowledge of these books. The Middle School (MBOB) team is open to 6th-8th grades, and the Elementary (EBOB) team is open to 4th & 5th grades, with 3rd graders allowed to participate as JV (non-competitive) members. All BOB titles are available to check out from the DTS library.
