Trivia Night – a Spooktacular Success

The Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library Spooktacular Trivia Night on October 20, 2022 was a Spooktacular success!

Enthusiastic, professional Trivia Master Amanda Wilson hosted the evening. She kept us all entertained with questions custom-designed for our lively group of 137 Friends of the Winnipeg Library supporters. 

The bar was hopping, and delicious pizzas were delivered to every table to keep competitors fueled for the exciting race to see which team would emerge as the Spooktacular Trivia Night champions!

Friends’ Board Director Chelsea McKee-Trenchard, one of the event organizers, tended the scoreboard that featured some twenty teams with names like The Magnificent Seven, The Goblins and Strutting Our Stuff.
