It's Contest Time!

You know what would be the best way to get ready for break? A contest in the library. The winner will receive a Starbucks gift card.

Our question: How many books are in the library?

You can submit your answer to the Jar of Wonders by where you sign in for study hall.

The contest runs from today until Thursday, March 26. On March 26, we will determine whose guess is the closest to how many books are in the library. In case of more than one correct answer, we will randomly draw from the correct answers.

Good luck!
