Trivia Night

Are you an expert on American History? A maven when it comes to music knowledge? Do you know everything there is to know about the great town of Westerly? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should prove your knowledge by joining us for a Trivia Night to benefit the Westerly Library and Wilcox Park! Tickets are now on sale for our fall fundraising event, and you won’t want to miss out.

Our Trivia fundraiser will take place this Friday, October 12th, from 7 to 10 p.m. in the library’s third floor Terrace Room. This will be team trivia, with up to 6 people per team. The great thing about this format is that you don’t have to be an expert on everything…this isn’t Jeopardy! The best teams are made up of people with different interests and different areas of expertise. There will be five timed rounds, each with 10 questions each, so there will be a wide range of questions.  Get ready to put your random knowledge to good use!

As mentioned, the evening will begin at 7 p.m., and there will be light pub snacks along with a cash bar.  Prizes will be awarded to the first and second place teams.  Tickets cost $120 per team…that’s only $20 apiece for a great night out that will benefit your favorite local library!

As a privately owned, not-for-profit organization, we rely on charitable support to accomplish our goals and to further our mission.  All the proceeds from this evening will go to the greatest needs of Westerly Library and Wilcox Park.

Tickets can be purchased online at our website,, in person at the Circulation Desk, or by calling our Event and Marketing Coordinator Bethany Austin at 401-596-2877 ex. 342. Make sure to purchase yours soon, before we sell out! If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, you may also contact Victoria Bernardo at, or 401-596-2877, ext. 302.
