WLAFLogo-2WLA Foundation Fundraiser: Return of Team Trivia
Kalahari Convention Center

What do you call an evening of trivia, award-winners, great food and drink, and even better company? We call it the WLA Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser! Get your team together and return this year by joining us during the WLA Conference at the Kalahari on Wednesday, October 18 from 8-11 PM and put your knowledge to the test! We know librarians are filled with answers to all kinds of trivial questions!

Think two brains are better than one – why not 8 brains? We welcome teams of up to 8 to form ahead or form at the event. The cost is only $25 a player if registered in advance, or $30 at the door. Come out and support Wisconsin libraries and let the games begin!!
