Back by popular demand, the Book Brackets competition returns this March!

Books competing in the 2022 tournament fall into eight categories; four for the children’s brackets and four for the teen/adult brackets. The 2022 categories are as follows: 

CHILDREN’S: Nonfiction, Picture Books, Super Series, and Graphic Novels. 

TEENS/ADULTS: Short Reads, Battles of the Banneds, All You Need Is Love, and Realistic Fiction. 

You can print a bracket worksheet from our webpage or stop by the Library to pick up a bracket worksheet and view the brackets on display in the first-floor Library Gallery. 

Fill out and return your bracket predictions by Sunday, March 13, for a chance to win great prizes.    

The first round for in-person and online voting starts Monday, March 7. A new round starts every Monday until there’s a winner. Make sure you vote online or in-person every week--it's up to you to decide which titles advance to the next round!  

Books that advance through the tournament will be posted on the Book Brackets webpage, the first-floor display, and updated on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. 

After the championship, the person with the most points will receive a $25 gift card for Prairie Lights!
