Instead of basketballs bouncing or nets swishing, you’re going to hear pages turning! It’s our 5th annual Tournament of Books at the Deerfield Public Library, and this year’s tournament is filled with your favorite books from 2017. Vote every day if you want to help us set a new record this year!

You can vote in the Library or on our website (click on the Tournaments of Books blog post each week to find the links to vote). We have THREE brackets this year: Picture Books versus Early Readers, Chapter Books versus Graphic Novels, and Teen Fiction.

Here are the rounds:
  • The Round of 32 begins on Feb. 13 and goes through Feb. 20
  • The Round of 16 runs from Feb. 21 to Feb. 27
  • Our Exciting Eight round starts on Feb. 28 and ends on Mar. 6
  • The Favorite Four round begins on Mar. 7 and ends on Mar. 13
  • The Championship round runs from Mar. 14 to Mar. 27, and our Championship titles will be announced on March 28th!

Which titles are your slam-dunk winners? Do you laugh at The Book with No Pictures or do you love dragons who love tacos? Are you a reader who loves Elephant & Piggie or is Fly Guy more for you? Will Harry Potter and the Cursed Child move forward in the tournament or that Wimpy Kid? Big Nate or Sisters? Would you choose I am Princess X over The 5th Wave? Vote as many times as you like to make sure your favorite titles move ahead in the tournament!
