Congratulations to the Black River Spirit Readers, who took first place at the 2015 North Country Battle of the Books! 13 teams battled it out on Saturday, May 30, at St. James School in Gouverneur, and even though this was only the second time the Sally Ploof Hunter Memorial Library has sent a team to the battle, their team took home the trophy.
Canton Free Library's SLEJ Hammers took home the (soon-to-be-traditional?) second prize pizza, and Carthage Free Library's Mystic Elements came in third place. Good job, everyone!
