It is the final week of March Literary Madness 2022 here at the Ashburn Library, and passions are running high amongst our younger patrons. We have heard kids cheer when they see their favorite books advancing each week. We have also had disappointed young readers question us intensely on the voting results. So for all you curious Literary Madness fans, here were the numbers for our final four: Dog Man (with 70% of the votes) versus Who Would Win (with 30% of the votes); and Elephant & Piggie (60%) versus Harry Potter (40%). Who will be our 2022 Champion?
