Battle of the Books 2024
Battle of the Books, a reading-enrichment program sponsored by Baldwin Public Library, aims to promote reading among fourth and fifth-grade BPS students. To participate, students collaborate with an adult coach and select five books from a designated list. They will then engage in a contest where they will compete against other teams by answering trivia questions related to the books they have read.
The event itself will occur on March 9 at 10 a.m. at Wylie E. Groves High School.

Author Book Breaks
The Birmingham Education Foundation (BEF) has awarded all BPS elementary schools a grant to provide book breaks to our students. This program features virtual author visits where students can hear from world renown authors, submit questions for the authors and engage with English language arts curriculum in new ways.
