The Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a Library Services and Technology Act grant.  Students in 3rd-12th grade, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints.


OBOB’s mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students. Learn more at the OBOB website.


OBOB is a great opportunity for 3-5 graders to participate in some friendly competition and to have fun reading. Students can create a team and read the 16 OBOB books assigned for this year and then in February the battles begin!


OBOB individual and team permission forms will be available in the library. We will be looking for volunteers to help out with battles starting in February.
