Galena Park High School's Cold Panic! Fallout! Wins The 2017 Tournament of Books

Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Harris County Public Library was able to pilot The Tournament of Books, a literacy competition for high school students designed to develop and encourage a love of reading. 

The competition kicked off last October at four partnering high schools: Clear Lake High School, Galena Park High School, Humble High School / Quest Early College High School, and Memorial High School. Students at those schools, led by their school librarians, formed teams of 3 to 5 students. They then worked together to read all 20 books on a designated list of diverse Young Adult books.
