Battledecks Contestants

Who will be crowned the 2018 Battledecks Champion?

The popular Battledecks competition returns to the Convention & Expo on Oct. 3, from 9-11 p.m. Battledecks is a test of nerves and the ultimate challenge for a public speaker (or anyone who just likes to talk!). Contestants attempt to deliver a presentation on the fly using a set of random, never-before-seen (and often hilarious) PowerPoint slides. Do you think you have what it takes to be a Battledecks champion? The OLC is looking for contestants. If you’re interested in joining this fun competition, send an email to Evan Struble, at estruble@library.ohio.gov. Special thanks to Midwest Tape, LLC for sponsoring this event.



Sip and Spell

The OLC will be pulling all of the big words out of the dictionary for its first-ever Sip and Spell event on Thurs., Oct. 4, from 9-11 p.m., during the Convention and Expo in Sandusky. Enjoy a night of spelling, laughter and fun with your colleagues from around the state. Gather your team now (3-5 people) to be a part of this adult spelling bee. Prizes will be awarded for best team name, best costumes, and of course, best spellers! There will be a cash bar, but alcohol is not part of the game. To sign up your team, contact Expo Committee member Stephanie Buchanan at stephanie.buchanan@bellevue.lib.oh.us.
