New City Takes First Place


In a tense competition, New City Library took first place in the Ramapo Catskill Library System's Battle of the Books.  With over 100 spectators cheering on their teams at the Haverstraw Library, our teens won by an 8-7 victory over Livingston Manor.  The very last question clinched the championship.  Members of our Book Battle group include from left to right: Susan Zollinger, Alex Borovoy, Shawna McKivergan, Chanda Bhandal, Rathna Ramanathan, Rachel Borovaya, Marie Yatsky, and in front Nicholas Procino and Ben Eisenberg.  Our team displayed their extensive knowledge of the eight titles selected this year.
