Begun at the Wheaton Public Library in 1987, the library's Battle of the Books program challenges local 4th and 5th grade students to read and become familiar with a wide variety of books. Book lists are put together by the Youth Services librarians and alternate every other year with some additions each season. Teams are formed through their school. A new season begins each January.
