World Cup of Books

Two anthropomorphic books on a soccer field

Every four years, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) hosts the World Cup, the most prestigious soccer (fútbal) tournament in the world. In conjunction with this year’s tournament, the library will be hosting its own World Cup... of books!

One book has been selected to represent each of the 32 countries that will be competing in the World Cup. For each match, the books will “compete” against each other, with the team that wins the match determining the winning book.
