Oregon City's premiere "Let's Get Lit" trivia night is emerging Thursday, March 21, as a partnership between the Oregon City Public Library and White Rabbit Books and Gifts.

"A trivia night seemed like a natural fit for a library program, as librarians have traditionally been the keepers of knowledge, trivial or otherwise," Bacon said.

Bacon said that White Rabbit owner Danielle Walsh, who has been a longtime library supporter, offered her space for the new program.

"We saw it as a great opportunity to get outside of the library and engage our patrons in the community, as well as partner with a local business that shares our passion for books," Bacon said. "Although the trivia revolves around literature, you don't have to be a book nerd to participate and have fun."

To participate, groups of two to six people will form teams and pick team names. There won't be anyone shouting out answers at the event. After each of the seven rounds of competition, a team representative will bring up an answer sheet and the scores will be tallied.

Bacon said the majority of the questions will be multiple choice, so participants still will have a chance to earn points even if they don't know the answer. In the case of a tie at the end of seven rounds, sudden-death rounds will be played between the two top teams. If anyone is caught using a cell phone during the event, their team will be disqualified.

During the event, wine and beer will be available for purchase.
