2014 Tournament of Books
Help us decide the MVB (Most Valuable Book) of 2013! Now through April 12th, you can participate in March Madness – Tournament of Books. Based on the NCAA College Basketball Tournament in March, our “tournament” will pit 32 of the most popular books from 2013 against each other to see who comes out on top! You can vote at the library or online, along with patrons from other GMILCS libraries, each week, to determine winners.
There are 2 components to this event – the initial bracket predictions & then the live, weekly voting. The person who predicts the greatest number of correct bracket winners will win a gift certificate to Ollie’s Restaurant. Participants do not have to read each title, guessing is welcomed & encouraged!
Brackets & book lists are available at the library, or download the .pdfs:
There are 32 paired titles – submit your paper bracket to the library, completely filled with your predictions for all weeks and return them to the library by March 15th & don’t forget to include your name & phone # on your submission.
