March Madness

Participate in the library's March Madness @ Your Library - Book Tournament for a chance to win a prize. Based on the NCAA College Basketball tournament, we’ve pitted thirty-two of the most popular adult fiction books of 2013 against each other for our very own tournament of books. Which title will be named champion? Patrons from Amherst and other GMILCS libraries will vote each week to determine winners.

How it works:
Pick up a voting bracket at the library (or click here to print one yourself) and fill it out with your selections. Submit your completed bracket to the library by March 15 and then visit this page each week to cast your vote for the winners in each round. The participant that picks the most matchups correctly on their bracket will win a prize! Please include your name and contact information (phone number or email address) on your completed bracket so that we can notify you if you win the prize.
