2016 Great Library Quiz Night - HUGE SUCCESS!!!

Quiz night WINNERS

The ALIAWest committee would like to thank library colleagues and friends, the State Library of WA (SLWA) and sponsors for supporting The Great Library Quiz Night 2016. 

The event was held at the State Library of Western Australia on the evening of the Thursday, 1st December 2016.  The funds raised will assist to fund the Kay Poustie Scholarship and Sharr Award.  Major sponsors were ALS Library Services, WA Museum, Art Gallery of WA, Heyder and Shears, OverDrive, Bolinda, James Bennett and Wave Sound.

The event was very well attended by 11 teams who answered eight rounds of questions.  Bonus points were earned by completion of a quiz sheet to name different logos; working out the Dewey Decimal number for each table, and to see who could create the longest Mintie wrapper with only one Mintie. 

The Heads and Tails game was played and teams were rewarded with some bonus points for their tables and this year we also added “Air Guitar” to the quiz night, which was super fun to watch! Thank you to all of those who were willing to participate and earn some valuable points for their tables. There were some great moves :-)

Kym Andrews, ALIAWest’s 2016 Convenor was the MC for the night. Thank you for doing an excellent job Kym!


Table number 808.81 won first prize.

Second prize went to 796.63

Third prize went to 583.96

A special prize was also won by 571.49

The next ALIAWest Great Library Quiz night will be held in December 2017, and the committee look forward to another successful evening. 

Thank you Margaret Allen for your ongoing support with this event
