March Madness Books-KETBall Tournament 2015

SCS Middle School Students

March Madness is here, but why should basketball fans have all the fun? At your library, you can help us name a SCS Library Middle School Book Champion for 2015. Through a series of votes, we are narrowing our list of the 32 at SCS to one grand champion.


Read the directions below - fill out a bracket- before 3/25 when voting starts!! Watch your email to vote online!! or use the iPad voting center in the library.
Questions? Confused? ASK us at the library.
32 well-read titles (including some classic longshots) have trained up to earn their spot in this year's tournament. Some of last year's competitors have returned, some have lost their spot to shiny young upstarts and/or older and steadier favorite reads. Can Katniss hold onto her championship title, or will she fall to Max’s Wild Things? So many "series" books and so little time...
Starting as soon as the brackets go on display on today, the books will face off in 16 matches with East and West divisions of some kid’s favorites and popular Literature. Come by the library to fill out a bracket today. Vote for your favorite books online starting Wednesday after you all turn in your brackets. Prizes will be awarded to students with a winning bracket AND all voters have a chance to win.
Round 1 votes for the Thunderous 32 will be counted next Wednesday afternoon. Vote now on lots of books you have known and loved, known and despised, or need to know!
Let the passionate wuthering of your tell-tale literary hearts begin!
