March Madness Book Championship

It’s nearly time! The second annual March Madness Book Championship brackets are just about ready for YOU to vote on between March 6 and April 2.

16 titles will go against each other and only one will win. Each week, you can vote online or on paper in the TeenZone. The winners of each pairing move on to the next week’s match up so who knows? A manga romance might beat a murder mystery or the true tale of Lizzie Borden might defeat the historical fiction based on a WWII tragedy. You decide.

Stay tuned and watch this space or check the Curtis Memorial Library social media streams or stop by the TeenZone to vote starting Monday March 6.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the books that will appear on the bracket:
