Deptford library’s trivia night promises fun for knowledgeable family

Subjects for the contest will range from pop culture to history

The Deptford library will host its second trivia night on Thursday, March 9, at 6:30 p.m.

Trivia subjects will range from pop culture to sports to history and to movies. The event will be run by reference librarian Michelle Burns, who was inspired by a similar event.

My friends and I went to a trivia night at a library in Camden County last summer, and I thought, ‘I can do that,’” she said. “So, I put together some questions and we had a bunch of fun last time. We will have teams of two to four people, and anyone is welcome to come. I encourage families to come, because the kids might be able to help the adults with some of the Disney questions.”

A maximum of six teams is allowed because of space issues, according to Burns. The event is free, but registration is required by emailing Burns at She will then distribute a registration form that can be filled out and sent back. Members of the winning teams will each receive Wawa gift cards.

Burns explained that there will be a wide variety of questions for people in the contest, which she acknowledged should be better than the first trivia night.

The biggest challenge in creating a trivia night like this is that you want the questions to be a challenge, but not too hard,” Burns noted. “It’s no fun if no one knows any of the answers, but they can’t be too easy either.  

“You want to have a winner,” she added. “It’s difficult to walk that line, and my first time around, I think I made the questions much too difficult. But I learned from that and hopefully we’ll have some good teams and good competition this time.”

The date for another trivia night at the library has yet to be determined.
