March Madness

It’s March Madness at the Idaho Falls Public Library!

To find our March Madness program for children, visit the Children’s March Madness page.

How It Works

Throughout the month of March, check out a book at the Idaho Falls Public Library and vote for your favorite book in each bracket. Come into the library to get the weekly QR Code and vote for your favorite books! Each week, we’ll count the ballots and advance the winning books to the next round. Copies of the losing books will be awarded as prizes through a weekly drawing. If you vote for title that wins the final bracket, you could win that book plus a Kindle Fire 7 tablet!


And the Winner Is …

Note: Patrons who win the drawings, including our grand prize drawing for this winning title and the Kindle Fire tablet, will be contacted personally by the library.

At the end of the challenge, we’ll hold a final drawing among ballots cast for the winning book. The winner of this drawing will receive a copy of the book and a a Kindle Fire tablet.
