Battle of the Books (BOB) is a fun reading program that encourages teamwork and reading a wide range of genres and authors. 4th-6th grade students read the assigned books, form teams in the early spring, and become experts on the details of the books.  

Students can read or listen to the books. There are multiple copies of the battle books available for checkout from the BOB cart (at school), the school library, the Salt Lake County Library or through the SORA app (all students have access to the SORA app where they can download the BOB titles as ebooks and audiobooks). 

Oquirrh's Battle of the Books will take place in the spring. The championship battle and students vs. teachers battle will be held as an assembly for 3rd-6th graders also in the spring.

New books for next school year's Battle of the Books will be announced in May 2025.
