Bibliobattle at Mandai Memorial Library was held on 9th October, 2021

On Saturday, 9th October 2021, an exciting book-vs-book contest “Bibliobattle at Mandai Memorial Library” was held successfully at Sagamihara Campus Festival. We have held this annual event for the eighth time, and this is the second time we held the game online.

*You can find more details about Bibliobattle on the official website by Committee of Bibliobattle.

Six battlers presented passionately their favourite books in front of a large audience through the screen, making it a fun game. The audience also enjoyed voting for “Champion Book of the Day”, a book which they want to read most.

You can watch the video of these presentations on the Bibliobattle by clicking on each book title.
