MONTICELLO, NY — On Saturday, April 5 the Battle of the Books team from the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library, The Novel Bunch, competed in the second annual Sullivan County Battle of the Books and came in first place. Team members Gabriel Megna and Britany Clark battled their way through three rounds of close competition.

The battle, held at the Daniel Pierce Public Library in Grahamsville, included four teams from Grahamsville, and teams from Eldred, Livingston Manor and Monticello. Each team was made up of kids in grades six to 12 who read the same five books for the battle and answered questions on them. The Novel Bunch came in first place, followed by Livingston Manor Free Library in second and a team from Daniel Pierce Public Library in third. All participants went home with two books, donated by the participating libraries.
