March Book Madness

We’ve selected 16 of our favorite books across four major genres and pitted them against one another in a March Madness-inspired tournament.

Eight books will battle in each category:

Fiction & Literature

Mystery & Suspense

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Young Adult

Only one book can win!

 

How to Participate:

·  Complete a bracket (which you can pick up one at the library or print a copy from here) and return it to the New Berlin Public Library by March 12th.

·  Beginning on March 13th, you’ll have a chance to vote each week for your favorite book. The book with the most votes in each pair at the end of the week will advance to the next round. 

·  Weekly voting opens on Mondays at 9 am and goes through the end of the day on Sunday.

·  You can vote by completing a ballot and returning it to the circulation or reference desk.

**Completed brackets returned to the library by March 12 that correctly predicted the winning book will be entered into a prize drawing.
