Princeton Public Library will host trivia night

PRINCETON — Princeton Public Library will host a trivia night, "Are You Smarter than a Librarian?" on Nov. 16 at the Bureau County Metro Center, 837 Park Ave. West in Princeton.

The funds raised will be earmarked toward special programs and expanding the collection by allowing the library to take advantage of the E-Read Illinois program. The E-Read program increases the amount and availability of e-books to its patrons and is based on a grant offered by the Illinois State Library.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and play begins at 6 p.m. David Roden will be the announcer for the evening. The library staff will be playing for the honor of their vocation; questions will come from a sealed set of clues and categories that the staff has not seen.

Food service will be a cash bar, and free pretzels and popcorn will be provided; teams are welcome to bring additional snacks. Teams of up to eight players may register and area businesses are invited to sponsor the event by purchasing a table ($12 per person/$96 per table). Individuals can also register to form ad hoc teams.

For sponsorships, reservations and team names, or for more information, contact Laurie Anderson at landerson@princetonpl.org; Julie Wayland at jwayland@princetonpl.org; or call the library at 815-875-1331.
