Teen Trivia

Every other Wednesday at 7:30 pm

Join Lorie on Zoom and Kahoot for Teen Trivia! Compete for a themed prize pack to be picked up via our curbside service. There will be prizes for the top 3 live scores.

Please email Lorie for the invite link.  You’ll need both Zoom and Kahoot (on separate devices) to play the live game, but you don’t need an account on either to play. Can’t play live? We’ll post the pin on social media to play just for fun and on your own time.  

Upcoming Themes:

November 18: Friends (TV Show)
December 2: Harry Potter
December 16: Christmas
December 30: ’80s
