Need something new to read?
It’s been a crazy school year, but we are still planning for 2020-2021 Battle of the Books! If you are not familiar with OBOB, it’s a team-based competition based on close reading of a selection of books, details may be found here: https://www.oregonbattleofthebooks.org/
If you will have a 3rd-5th grader interested in participating, the best thing to do is to start reading early. Local Escape Fiction Bookstore routinely offers new OBOB titles for 20% off. McKinley also makes a bulk purchase order which can allow us to access additional discounts that we use to purchase additional copies for the library or teachers’ use. Participation in OBOB is not a requirement for ordering books.
If you would like to order with us and help get McKinley a few free books, please print the order form below, fill out and mail to McKinley OBOB, C/O Becky Tei / 2610 E. Nob Hill St SE / Salem, OR 97302 with your check payment by June 5th. Books will be available for pickup at or near McKinley when they arrive, or contact Becky Tei to arrange a delivery. Please make checks payable to Escape Fiction Books.
NEW!! There is now a Google Sheets version of this form if you want to skip the math. You will need to make your own copy in order to edit. Click the link and go to File/Make a copy. Then you can input the number of copies of each book you would like to order, and it will total it for you! You will still need to print and mail the form with your check when you are done.
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering for this year’s Battle of the Books, please contact Becky Tei at 503-407-0882 or firstname.lastname@example.org
