Well, we didn't manage to win this year's Battle of the Books; that honor went to the Akron-Summit COunty Public Library in their first appearance in a Battle. But our team performed very well! Thanks to all who participated! Here is some video of the battle, which was held at the Cuyahoga Falls Library this year. Sorry that the audio is a little quiet at times; we did not have microphones for our players. Next year, we'll try again to win the Battle!
