Join our team of 6th,  7th and 8th grade readers as they compete against teams from Hudson Library, the Akron-Summit County Public Library, and Twinsburg Public Library in this fast-paced book trivia game (think Academic Challenge, using buzzers). Teams answer questions based on the following four books they all read over the summer: 

Ghost by Jason Reynolds

The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi

Under Their Skin by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Hosted by the entertaining Tom Stephan, our Stow team will be battling to defend our championship title and retain the rotating trophy at this year's battle, which will be held at the Akron-Summit County Public Library Main branch (60 South High St, Akron, OH 44326). Our team will practice a few times during the summer and work on their lightning reflexes. Everyone is invited to attend the Battle and play along (silently) in the audience. Refreshments and awards at the end! Cosponsored by the Friends of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library. If you have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade this spring and are interested in joining our team, talk to Christina the teen librarian at the Teen Information Desk as soon as possible.
