Trivia Night – Thursday, April 6 at 6:45pm

The Scranton Memorial Library’s Trivia Night Series continues on Thursday, April 6. Arrive at 6:45 pm to check in and find a seat, and the first round starts at 7 pm sharp. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Email scrantonlibrarytrivia@gmail.com to sign up as a team of up to six, as smaller groups, or individually. Due to limited space, teams with less than 6 players may be asked to combine/add players. Trivia Night is lead by a professional host and is similar to your average pub trivia game (minus the “pub” since we’re a library). It consists of 5 rounds of 10 questions. Categories generally include history, geography, pop culture, film, current events, and a special selection for the month. Trivia at the Library is free, and refreshments are provided by the Scranton Library Friends. Prizes to go the top team of the night, and include free books, coupons to book sales, a library fines waiver, bragging rights, and more!
