Step up to the Plate!
Season four of the national "Step Up to the Plate @ your library" program is well underway. The program teams up baseball and libraries to promote the importance of information skills. The contest centers on a baseball trivia contest. People of all ages are invited to visit their libraries and answer a series of trivia questions that focus on multiculturalism in baseball and baseball around the world, developed by library staff at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Entries are due September 1, 2009. One grand prize winner will receive a trip to the Hall of Fame in October. There are also prizes for the four libraries that bring in the most contest entries. See the contest rules for more information.
