March Madness isn’t just a basketball sensation. Stop in at the library and help determine the champion in this year’s book bracket challenge. Each day in March, two opposing picture books will go head to head in a fight to the top of 32 challengers. Read the books at the Kids’ Desk, vote for your favorite and watch the giant bracket fill up throughout the month until the ultimate title comes out as Top Read.
