Trivia night at the library!

Do you love trivia?  My guess is yes! Do you love the library? Of course you do!  Well, you are all ready then, to come down to Oakland for Trivia Night at the Main Library.  This Thursday, May 26th, from 6-7:30, the hosts of the Pub Quiz at the Brillobox will be guest-hosting a library-themed trivia night in the [not so] Quiet Reading Room on the First Floor.  I’m sure you’re hoping that these folks won’t be in attendance, although I can’t guarantee it.  Were it not library-related trivia, you could use some of these suggestions to get ready.  However, I do have some suggestions that may or may not help you out:

  1. Woohoo! What a great program idea, Kaarin – so glad your department is holding it. I can’t speak for all the Polymaths, but I personally will abstain as a point of honor/pride, so our patrons have a fighting chance at winning. ;)

    Thanks for letting people know about this, Kaarin! Rita and I are excited!

    Bibliӧwrӓth will also not be competing. (If we did, we would of course crush everyone, including the Polymaths.)
