Upcoming Battle of the Books Events

Greetings Friends-

Carroll County Public Library considers the health and safety of our customers and staff a top priority. Due to the recommendations from Governor Hogan to practice social distancing and cancel large events, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Battle of the Books events for 2020. Each of the 9 events draws an attendance of 350 -1,000 people. We know how much your students have been looking forward to this event, and we share your disappointment.

Due to the number of sites needed to accommodate 9 events for the more than 1300 students, among other factors, rescheduling is not an option. We recognize the current situation for Carroll County Schools is fluid, but when schools are back in session, we will be in touch to provide a modified Battle of the Books experience at individual schools.

Thanks for your understanding and patience-

CCPL Battle of the Books Committee
