Battle of the Books: 2019 TEAM

Battle of the Books Team 2019

On Sunday, September 8th, the Moffat Library team won first place in the RCLS 2019 Battle of the Books!

This year, 19 teams from libraries in the Ramapo Catskill Library System competed. Each teen was asked to read eight YA books in preparation for the competition in various genres such as fantasy, nonfiction, and historical fiction. The teens representing Moffat Library began reading and practicing months in advance, and all their hard work and dedication clearly made a difference at Sunday's competition.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible, including the parents and guardians who have supported these teens through many summers of this competition; the library staff who endured our frequently loud and impassioned practice sessions; and most of all to the teens who put in so much of their time and energy this summer analyzing, debating, practicing, and reading. Congratulations!

2019 Team: Peyton Andretta, Julia Ariano, Anne Hagan, Joliet McGregor, Bianca Ring, Lydia Ring, Ben Tarace, Dylan Tarace, and Johanna Wichmann
