Saturday, October 20th, 7-10pm
St. Francis de Sales Parish Hall, 381 School Street, NK
Looking for a fun night out?  Come to the library’s 5th annual Trivia Night fundraiser!  Teams of eight players will brainstorm answers to questions on a variety of topics.  All players in the top three teams win prizes like gift certificates to local businesses.  Don’t have a team of eight?  That’s okay – we’ll place you with other (very smart) library supporters and you’ll have new friends by the end of the night.  Wine and small bites served.  Tickets are $25 in advance at the library and $30 at the door – cash, check, or credit card accepted.
