Area teens are encouraged to drop by the library March 1-9 to fill out a tournament bracket for “March Book Madness.” Participants ages 12 – 18 may complete a bracket for 16 popular young adult and Jr. Classic Fiction book titles, to predict the most popular book. Incentives will be offered for bracket submissions and voting rounds. Amazon gift cards will be awarded for the top three bracket submissions that most closely match the outcomes of the competition (brackets must be submitted by March 9). Teens may vote for their favorite books during each round of the competition. The first round of voting begins March 11th. The championship round will take place the week of April 1-6.
