Women's History Month Trivia @ Northwest

March is Women's History Month. In celebration, customers can try their hand at a trivia game. Visit our location and play the guessing game currently on display behind the information desk. Customers who attempt to guess the names of the images on display will be entered into a drawing that will take place in April. The submission sheet is available at the Northwest Branch Library.  Make sure to include your name and a telephone number. Please call the Northwest Branch Library at 281-890-2665 or email us at nw@hcpl.net if you have any questions. 

Checking with Intent

 In observance of Hispanic Heritage, Northwest Branch Library is having a trivia give away. This trivia involves pertinent information on Hispanic Heritage. The patron who answers all the questions correct, their name will go into a drawing. We will draw from this pile and we will give away the prizes. Adults get on board and pick up your questionnaire at the customer service desk. Let’s get in the mood to celebrate! The drawing will take place on October 15th. The questionnaire must be returned by October 12th. If you need more information contact Gwendolyn @ 281-890-2665.

 

Candy and Questions

What does candy and questions really mean? February is the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day. Northwest Branch will be doing a Valentine’s Day trivia for the adults. All you will need to do is come by the library to pick up your trivia sheet. Answer the trivia questions to the best of your knowledge and turn it in before the 28th of the month. When you turn in your sheet you will be eligible to win a surprise treat!

 

 

 

Halloween Scary Smart

Halloween Scary Smart
Halloween is a good time to test our smartness. While we are having fun with friends and family, let’s trick our minds into treating thoughts of Halloween trivia. This is just a few questions to get you started.
1. What country did Halloween come from?
2. Pumpkins grow on?
3. What phobia means you have an intense fear of Halloween?
4. What was Dracula’s real name?
5. What was the name of Dracula’s side kick?

Bonus Question: What is the second most commercially successful holiday?

 

Wait and Read

Running errands always means you'll be waiting in line somewhere. Standing in line easily becomes a chore itself, but if you have a book handy, it’s no longer something to be endured. Instead, waiting becomes a time to enjoy a good book, if only for a few minutes. 

I like to bring books that are easy to jump in and out of when I have to wait. My favorite “waiting books” are trivia and fact books because you can stop on any page and begin reading.

 Do you bring a book with you when you know you’ll be waiting in long lines?  What books do you enjoy reading as you wait?

 

Here are some titles I've carried with me during quick trips:
