When is the Trivia Championship?
Typically held the second Thursday in November in the downtown library.
Note: Due to the downtown library remodel the next scheduled event is November 2022.
How can you participate?
You can participate on either an individual or corporate team or come and watch for free and enjoy a cash/card bar, $1 and $5 raffles, and engaged audience participation.
What should you expect?
Questions are asked in these areas: pop culture, literature, sports, history and geography, and current events. Two teams in each round will advance to the final round.
The team with the most correct answers becomes the Trivia Champions. Audience members “play along” for their own prizes.
Plan on participating in the future and providing your support for the Spokane Public Library Foundation.
