Battle Of the Books (BOB) is a competitive book trivia tournament for kids in grades 5–8 sponsored by the Grandville Branch of Kent District Library, in partnership with the Grandville Public Schools. Participants form their own teams of between one and six kids and they read five pre-selected books (see titles below). With the guidance of their coach, each team hones their knowledge of the books and gets ready to compete with other BOB teams.
