At the Daniel Boone Regional Library, preparation for March Madness begins in the early winter months when we announce our 16 most popular young adult books. This gives you several weeks to read as many of these titles as possible.
Vote through March 4th for your favorite eight books. Then, the tournament heats up as those titles are seeded and face off in head-to-head competition. Each week in March, teens 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 cool prizes. 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 NOW through March 4 for the Elite Eight.
Round 2: Vote March 8-14 for the Final Four.
Round 3: Vote March 15-21 for the final two contending titles.
Round 4: Vote March 22-April 1 for the book tournament champion.
April 4: The champion is announced!
Each round that you vote, your name is entered into our prize drawing! Limit one ballot per person, per round.
