No. 4 seed Schlow beat No. 13 seed Bennett Civic Center Library in Lavonia, Michigan, with 58 percent of the vote to advance to the Sweetums 16, named after the fictional sweet treat manufacturer in Parks and Recreation. Schlow will face off against No. 5 seed Iowa City Public Library in the Ron Swanson bracket this week, its first true college town opponent of the voting season.

Voting for the round of 16 ends on Friday, February 9. Voting for each round takes place every week until a library is chosen the week of February 26. You can vote here to send our musk ox to the next round.
