Pop Culture Trivia - January 19

Show off your knowledge of pop culture in our Pop Culture Trivia Contest on January 19 at 5 p.m. in the Balkansky Room. This isn't just any trivia contest, however. We will actually give you the answers - you just have to make sure you pick the right ones. Get the answers right and the points will pile up. Get them wrong and you can lose big!

Come have some snacks and soda and show off your smarts off all things pop culture!

Bucks Reading Challenge is Underway!

The Milwaukee Bucks Reading Challenge returns for 2010 for everyone in grades 3-10. Anyone who participates can earn a voucher for a ticket to a Bucks game, plus chances to earn other cool prizes, like an autographed basketball, court side seats, and on-court recognition for your reading skills.

All you need to do is keep track of the number of pages you read in magazines and newspapers (up to 100 pages combined) and in books (unlimited) until you read at lead 500 pages. That will earn you voucher for either the May 13 game vs. New Orleans or the May 21 game vs. Portland. If you keep reading beyond 750 pages, you can earn Overtime status and have your name entered into drawings for the addition prizes.

To take part, stop by the Reference Desk or the Youth Department to register and get your scoring sheets. The contest goes until February 13, when you must report the number of pages you read to us at the library.

New this year is a series of collectible book marks - one available each week until the challenge wraps up. Stop by the Reference Desk each week to get a new bookmark featuring a different Buck player, including Michael Redd, Brandon Jennings, Andrew Bogut, Luke Ridnour, Luc Richard MBah a Moute, and Hakim Warrick.

Stop in and sign up today - it is a fun and easy way to earn tickets to a Bucks game!
