      ACPL Book Bowl

      ACPL Book Bowl Sunday, April 7 1:00-4:00 pm Allen County Public Library Main Library - Meeting Rooms (First Floor) Gather your most book-savvy friends and compete in the biggest literary event of the year - the Allen County Public Library Book Bowl! This is the big dance, the game of games, the ultimate test. 15 teams will enter the arena but only one will be crowned the 2019 Book Bowl Champions. All ages are eligible to compete on teams. There is no fee to enter your team for competition, but there will be opportunities to purchase exclusive perks (cash and card accepted) that could change the game and put your team at the top. The ACPL Book Bowl is sponsored by the Friends of the Allen County Public Library and is our kick-off event for National Library Week - April 7-13, 2019. THE DETAILS: This event will shake down in two rounds. Each round will consist of 4 categories, with 10 questions in each category. In total, there will be 8 categories (80 questions). Categories will represent a variety of literary topics, genres, and characters. Each team is allowed up to 6 people. A panel of librarians will read questions out loud, and questions will also be displayed on large screens. Each team will have 15 seconds to finalize their answer. One point will be awarded for each correct answer. The winning team will win a grand prize, and the winning team's name will be engraved on the ACPL Book Bowl trophy. This year's custom Book Bowl trophies were created by The HEDGE, a locally-owned and operated shop located in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne.
