The Lake Bluff Public Library held its final and largest trivia contest for 2019 at Bernie’s Book Bank on Saturday, Nov. 16.

The library has been regularly hosting free trivia contests at Lake Bluff Brewing Co. over the past few years. Per Library Director Eric Bailey, it is their most popular and widest-reaching outreach event, so they decided to culminate this year’s series with a trivia contest that doubled as a fundraiser. It marks the end of the library’s year-long centennial celebration and the beginning of a capital campaign for library renovations.
