Trivia Olympics Fundraiser—Thursday, October 28, 7:00 p.m.
Dust off your knowledge of the obscure and arcane when you join Jefferson County Library’s first-ever Trivia Olympics fund-raising event.
A professional host will emcee this pandemic-safe virtual party via Zoom, with participants logging in for four rounds of questions in various categories. Prizes will be awarded, but the real grand prize is bragging rights for your trivia prowess. Expect 90 minutes of spirited competition, punctuated with laughs.
Participants may join as teams of up to five members, or individuals can be grouped into teams of soon-to-be friends. The entry fee is $30 for an individual or $100 for a team. Sign up info is at jclibrary.info. If trivia isn’t your passion, please use the occasion to donate to the library. Questions about this fundraiser or donations to Jefferson County Library can be directed to Development Director Mark Paxton at email@example.com.
Supreme Court Discussions—All Thursdays in October, 6:00 p.m.
Watch this four-part online lecture series that will review U.S. Supreme Court processes and players, explore select major cases from the 2020 term, and discuss scheduled cases for the remainder of 2021. Participants will be invited to share questions or comments during the first session and presenters will address them in subsequent sessions.
The series will be led by two legal experts. Nils Pedersen is a retired patent attorney and recently admitted member of the Washington State Bar. His new interest is estate law and end-of-life legal planning. Dr. Joyce Francis is a retired international relations professor and long-time facilitator of the Great Decisions program at Jefferson County Library. Register at jclibrary.info.
Watercolor Bookmark Class—Wednesday, October 27, 6:30 p.m.
Library staff members will lead an online class for creating a bookmark with splashes of watercolor, and then adding daisy images using ink. You can pick up a supply kit at the library or bookmobile, or use your own supplies. No experience is necessary. Registration and requests for supply kits are required at jclilbrary.info.
Creature Creations by Teens—October 25 to 29
Youthful creators ages 12 to 18 are invited to stop by the library’s Teen Nook during regular library hours to design a one-of-a-kind creature. You’ll be able to roll a die to determine what it will look like or go wild using the library drawing supplies and your own creativity.
