Join us on on Tuesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m. to mark the 50th anniversary of our very own Friends of the Knox County Public Library.
Friends of all walks are invited to test their knowledge of the past five decades. You will be delighted and charmed by questions that ricochet between bell bottoms and shoulder pads, Knoxville literati over the years, and major library-related milestones in our community.
The Friends have made an impact that might just surprise you! If you're already a member, you know. If you're not, you'll want to know more.
This live, interactive event is free and will take place in living rooms everywhere on Zoom. The only requirements to play are registration to receive the Zoom link and a computer or device with internet access.
In-depth knowledge of the subject is not necessary—experts and novices alike can either play for points or log on as a spectator.
The grand prize for top points is being discussed now. Whatever it is, it will be fabulous!
