Libby trivia: 10 questions to test your knowledge of the library reading app


Mar 28, 2023

Have you ever gone out to trivia with friends, hoping to dazzle the patrons of your local dive bar with your knowledge of classical and contemporary literature, but the only questions they asked were about the Summer Olympics or ancillary characters from 90s sitcoms? Ever wished there was a place for trivia exclusively about the Libby app? (If not, would you consent to humor me?)

At last, your wishes have been answered! (Thanks for your indulgence.) Today, I’ve got some just-for-fun Libby trivia; no number two pencils or overpriced appetizers required. I’m sure we’ve got some trivia ringers out there (must be all that reading!), so some of the questions are a little tricky.
