Virtual Trivia Night
Monday, September 28 at 7pm

Join us on Zoom for a fun friendly night of trivia! Play solo, or with a team (virtually speaking). Trivia questions will be read aloud and displayed in a slide show presentation in Zoom. No webcams or microphones necessary. Registration is required. 

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.
  • Each player/team is responsible for scoring your own answer sheet, so be sure to have paper and pen ready! 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.
  • Trivia teams can be in the same household, or in different households. We are not encouraging people to gather in groups to play. Stay safe, stay home. Instead, if you choose to play with a team, you are responsible for determining ahead of time how your team will communicate with one another.
  • Players will not be able to use the Zoom chat to communicate with one another. Instead, we recommend setting up alternate channels of communication (group text, Google Hangout, FaceTime, etc.) in order to pool team resources. Library staff will not be responsible for facilitating teams or team communications.

No prizes are awarded, it's all just for fun!

The meeting link along with more details will be sent to you after you are registered. Download Zoom ahead of time to avoid unnecessary delays.
