Trivia

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.

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:
