At the library, preparation for March Madness begins today when we announce the 16 most popular teen titles at DBRL! This gives you over two months to read these books and get ready to vote for your favorites later this spring. In March, you’ll vote weekly to narrow down the list of contenders and crown the 2019 Mid-Missouri teen book champion!
Each round you vote, your name will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an Amazon Fire. March Madness is open to all teens ages 12-18 who live in either Boone or Callaway County, Missouri.
How It Works:
- Round 1: Vote March 5-10 for the Elite 8.
- Round 2: Vote March 12-17 for the Final 4
- Round 3: Vote March 19-24 for the final two contending titles.
- Round 4: Vote March 26- April 4 for the book tournament champion.
- April 5: The champion is announced!
Each round that you vote, your name is entered into our prize drawing! Limit one ballot per person, per round.
