Silver City Public Library
Western New Mexico University hosted this year's children's Battle of the Books program, which included participants throughout the state of New Mexico.
Harmony Phillips is the Children's Librarian at the Public Library; she assisted with this event at the competition and she was also present at the award ceremony at its completion.
Harmony was informed of a student in a local public school who had withdrawn from his school's Battle of the Books team two weeks before the competition because of poor treatment from the coaching parent (of another participant). The student had read 18 out of 20 books (the minimum is 10 to be on the team).
To be able to participate, a student must be sponsored by a NM school or library. After Harmony learned of the child's situation, she got permission both from the Public Library Director and the Battle of the Books Coordinator to sponsor the student in the competition. The student and his parents were very grateful that he'd still be able to compete.
As a result of Harmony's decision to support the event and sponsor the student, the student was part of the 1st Place Elementary School Team for the State Battle of the Books competition.
The following week, the student and his family brought Harmony a bouquet of flowers, a bag of the student's favorite candy, and a card expressing their gratitude and appreciation for sponsoring their child and allowing him to have such a proud, successful experience.
