Barbara Hill looks over the selection of best sellers at the Cooper-Siegel Community Library in Fox Chapel.

Cooper-Siegel Community Library is hoping to stoke your competitive fire with an adult-only trivia night on Oct. 27.

This is the first fundraiser of its kind at the library, Executive Director Jill McConnell said. She expects that it will open the eyes of people who still think libraries are just for borrowing books.

“It's a great opportunity for people to experience the library in a whole different way,” McConnell said.

Cooper-Siegel, at 403 Fox Chapel Road, hosts concerts, art shows,science, technology, engineering and math programs and yoga.

Trivia night will be from 6 to 9 p.m. and is limited to 70 people.

Competitors are encouraged to form a team of 10 people to play, but individual players are welcome too. Participants are asked to bring a snack or dessert to share. Beer and wine are permitted. Tickets cost $25 per person or $20 per person in a team of 10 players. Tickets are available at coopersiegeltrivianight.eventbrite.com.

Proceeds will be used to improve the library's meeting spaces and expand programs, McConnell said.

For more, contact McConnell at 412-828-9520 or mcconnellj@einetwork.net.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
