Reading Olympics

Reading Olympics

The goal of the Reading Olympics is to increase students’ reading for enjoyment and increase reading skills.  Students collaborate with their teammates to read forty to fifty books that have been selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom teachers.  These professionals read the books and write questions which teams of students answer during the competition.  The Olympics are primarily a celebration of reading rather than a contest.  All participants are awarded ribbons.  Since the teams generate much excitement about this event, the experience is rewarding for everyone involved.

School Districts throughout Montgomery and Bucks Counties engage in friendly but fierce rivalry to see who can win top honors in building, district and county-level competitions each Spring.

To participate, students read as many of the books on the Reading Olympics booklists as they can, then compete to answer questions about plots, characters and themes of the books they read.  The Summer Reading Program is a great time to get a head start on training for Reading Olympics.  Here are this year's lists of books, along with call number information indicating where you can find the books at the Horsham Township Library:
