Nassau County Legislator Dennis Dunne, Sr. attended Nassau County’s First Battle of the Books as East Meadow vs. Levittown. Young adults, grades 6-9, formed teams at their respective libraries earlier this summer to prepare for the event – showing true dedication in their time off from school and Levittown came out on top.
The Battle of the Books featured three rounds of trivia questions on several books that each student read over the summer. Each student was required to read at least two of the novels.
