Battledecks will be held on Wed., Sept. 28, from 9-11 p.m. at the Glass City Center in Toledo. Join us in Ballroom C for all of the laughter and fun!

Buckeye Battledecks is back for its 11th anniversary! For the uninitiated, Battledecks is a test of nerves and the ultimate challenge for a public speaker (or someone who just likes to talk). Contestants will be asked to present on a plausible library Convention topic without ever previously seeing the presentation slides. But be prepared, these are not your typical stock image slides. Come enjoy the thrill of victory and the hilarity of defeat!

Buckeye Battledecks will be held on Wednesday night, Sept. 28 during the 2022 Convention and Expo on at the Glass City Center in Toledo. Who will be crowned the 2022 Buckeye Battledecks Champion? Join us to find out!

Be a Contestant!
The Local Arrangements Committee is seeking 10 contestants to join in the fun. If interested (or if you’d like to nominate someone from your library!), email Abby Byers at We’ll be seeking contestants until all 10 spots are filled.
