Battle of the Books 2017

Five library teams faced off against each other in this exciting battle of literary knowledge and speed, hosted by Stow this year. This year's books: All Fall Down by Carter, Booked by Alexander, The Iron Trial by Black and Clare, and Dangerous by Hale. Hudson Library & Historical Society and Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library won the first, "Semi-Final" battle against Cuyahoga Falls Library and Twinsburg Public Library. Stow and Hudson then competed against last year's winner, Akron-Summit County Public Library. Hudson ended up winning the Final Battle, with Stow in second and Akron in third. Congratulations to all the teams for their great efforts!

Escape Room: Totally 80's Adventure

Teens worked in teams to find clues and solve puzzles in order to unlock five locks before time ran out! The theme was "Radically 80's", so the first step was figuring out 1980's technology: how to play an audiocassette tape!

At our annual summer celebration during Stow Pride Week, we had a day full of fun and learning!

Wow!
