Hey sports fans!! March Madness is here, and it's time to talk some trash and help pick which book is going to come out on top. Take a look at our March Madness Tournament of Books board outside the library and check out a book on display. Vote on which book you think will win each bracket. We start off with a set of the Sweet Sixteen titles. At the end of the week, the winners are revealed, and the books move on (with a bracket of 8). You get the idea! When we go down to the last two, vote for your favorite! If your favorite wins the tournament, your name goes in a drawing to win prizes.
There are 5 chances to win:
1. Complete the bracket and turn in to the library by
Thursday, March 16. No brackets will be taken after this date.
2. Vote each WEEK of the Tournament. If your favorite choices
win, your name goes in a drawing to win prizes.
There are 4 chances to vote: vote for the Elite 8, the Final Four,
the Big Game, and The Winner.
Be sure to get your voice heard by voting! Vote with the link above or stop by the library and vote on paper.
