Washington School, winners of the 2024 Battle of the Books

Congratulations to the 2024 Battle of the Books first place winner, Washington School! Kudos to second place winner Carpenter School, and to Mary, Seat of Wisdom who took third. Thank you to all the team coaches and teachers who helped these readers prepare for the contest. And thank you to Mary, Seat of Wisdom for hosting our Battle celebration on February 29!

For more than 40 years, the Park Ridge Public Library has partnered with Park Ridge schools to offer fourth and fifth grade students a chance to test their knowledge of books. 

Each school forms its own team under the guidance of a coach (a school librarian, teacher or parent) who decides the make-up of the team, schedules practice time, and sets the requirements for being part of that school’s team.

The Library schedules and hosts the meets, held on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m. beginning the Monday after Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

If you have any questions, please talk to your school librarian or call the Children’s Department at 847-720-3250.
