Join us in person or online for our first hybrid trivia night! Trivia questions will be read aloud and displayed in a slide show presentation. Please note, while all ages are welcome, trivia questions are geared toward adults in content and challenge rating.

  • Trivia will consist of 3 rounds of general questions ranging from a variety of topics, a picture round, and a 3 question bonus round to end the night.
  • Play solo, or with a team. Library staff will not be responsible for facilitating teams.
  • Each player/team is responsible for scoring their own answer sheet; pens and paper will be provided. This is meant to be fun. All scores are on the honor system. At the end of each answer round, scores will be submitted to the host, who will tally scores and read the standings aloud.
  • No prizes are awarded, it's all just for fun!

*****This is our first hybrid session for trivia, so please bear with us for any delays or technical issues that may occur.*****
