Our first ever Mario Kart tournament for the Wii had 28 racers participate, and in the end, Bryan came out victorious over Halle in the final matchup. Congratulations to them! They won GameStop giftcards, provided by the Friends of the Library, plus bonus swag from Pizza Hut. And Pizza Hut of Stow provided free pizza for all players! Thank you Pizza Hut! Stay tuned for our next Mario Kart tournament.

Read with a Book Pal

School-aged children who are reading will be paired with a teen to explore and read books together this summer. This program will take place in July and pairs will be asked to schedule four meetings during the month. Teen mentors, who must have completed the 7th grade, will be reading pals and not tutors. Together they will select and read books here at the library.

Sign up your child for this fun program - a chance to practice reading and make a new friend!

Drupal

I am excited about the Library's Drupal implementation. The website has excellent functionality and great graphical elements, and it is easy to navigate. Drupal is a powerful tool. I am interested in the JQuery modules that enable interactive, animated features and calendar functions.
