At the Daniel Boone Regional Library, preparation for March Madness begins in December when we announce our 16 most popular teen books. This gives you over two months to read these titles and get ready to vote for your favorites in the spring. You have through Sunday, March 8 to vote for your favorite 8 books. Then, the competition heats up, as each week in March, young adults vote to narrow down the list of contenders until a single title emerges as the 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 tablet. March Madness is open to all teens ages 12-18 who live in either Boone or Callaway County, Missouri.
