Battle of the Books

This year’s MCPL Battle of the Books team, “Save Me a Story,” read and studied eight young adult novels to compete against teams from Suffolk County libraries at Stony Brook University. A special thanks to our Battle teens, parents, coaches, and all the volunteers. As always, we’re very proud of them, and are looking forward to next year!
