Team Trivia Tuesday
The Library is encouraging community members to form teams with friends, family, colleagues, church groups, and clubs and other organizations. If you cannot form a team, the Library will place you on a team. This is a great opportunity for outreach for your organization. Our first Team Trivia Tuesday was a huge success and we are looking forward to seeing new teams formed to join in on the fun and old ones returning to defend their titles!
Join your hosts from Villa Park Public Library and compete in teams of up to seven adults. Library staff will attempt to thwart your knowledge with a mixture of questions in various categories.
Possible trivia categories include, but are not limited to, In the News, Sports/ History, Movies/TV, Music, Science, and Useless Trivia. To get a jump on the competition, like us on Facebook. Categories and topic hints will only be announced in advance on our Facebook page.
The winning teams will receive fabulous prizes courtesy of Crazy Pour.
Registration is not required. For more information, check out the Villa Park Public Library website at www.vppl.info or call 630-834-1164, Ext. 5.
