Introducing The Tournament of Abes!

20 Books Enter, 1 Book Leaves

OPRFHS Library and The Oak Park Public Library are hosting a March Madness style tournament using the Abe Lincoln Award book list.

Brackets are available now for you to predict what books you think will win each round.  Perfect brackets will win either a Book Table or Magic Tree gift card!  Brackets are due to the OPRFHS Library Dec 18th, and to OPPL by January 3rd.

Starting in January, there will be voting on what books should win each round every other week.  Links to online voting will be here on the blog and on the Tournament LibGuide.

The champion book will be announced at the Tournament of Abes final event at the Oak Park Public Library on March 9th.

You don't have to read the books to participate (but the more books you have read, the more fun the tournament will be!).

Stop by the library today to fill out a bracket and pick up a few of the Abes to read over winter break!
