Battle of the Books 2019

In a very exciting game, Hudson Library's team ended up victorious over the other three very competitive libraries; Twinsburg Library managed a very excellent second place with their one-person team! (This was a tough recruiting year for both Stow-Munroe Falls and Twinsburg.) Stow came in third and Akron was fourth. The top three teams received Target giftcards, courtesy of their various Friends of the Library organizations, and all players got to take home free books to keep. Hudson will give the rotating trophy a home until next year's battle.This year's battle was hosted at Akron-Summit County Public Library's Main branch.
