Llibrary Trivia Night

leave a comment »

The Carbondale Public Library is having a trivia night and silent auction. From an email sent to the Arbor District list:

Like watching Jeopardy? Why not play it yourself?: Come give it a shot at the Carbondale Public Library’s Trivia Night Fundraiser. You’ll put together a team of up to six players ($120 for the team’s table). You’ll conspire with your teammates on all your answers. No geniuses required! The game is played in topical rounds.

Saturday, February 5th 6:30pm – 9:00pm (Game begins @ 7:00pm). $150 Grand Prize to the winning team, plus lots of other prizes!

Pre-Register @ the library circulation desk, or call 457-0354 ext. 1 to register with a credit card. $120 per team/table. Each team receives 6 tickets. Buy your team tickets, then distribute/sell them to your best and brightest friends. Discounts for kids (Hey, really, who’s smarter than a fifth grader?). ($20 per adult ticket; $10 per child 12 & under. For example, an all-adult team pays $120 for the evening’s entertainment. A team of adults and two kids pays only $100).

Come have fun and support the library! We are hosting a silent art auction too! Feel free to distribute the attached fliers and email!

My understanding is that recent state budget cuts have hit the library pretty hard. This is a good opportunity to have some fun and support a valuable community resource.
