ELKHART — Some 21 fifth and sixth graders from the Elkhart area took part in a unique quiz bowl style competition Saturday morning testing their knowledge of popular books. 

Battle of the Books in the Elkhart Public Library's downtown location at 300 S. 2nd St. featured teams of four or five students who were quizzed on 10 popular fiction titles. Five teams from Beardsley and Mary Beck elementary schools in Elkhart and Concord Intermediate School in Dunlap registered over the winter and received the stack of books to prepare.
