Oregon Battle of the Books logoWELCOME TO OREGON BATTLE OF THE BOOKS!

The Oregon Battle of the Books, OBOB, is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a Library Services and Technology Act grant. Students in 3rd-12th grade, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints. The mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students.

This is an Edison parent organized activity working at our site level in conjunction with volunteers through the Oregon Association of School Libraries, OASL, and funded partially through the Library Services and Technology Act.
