It was an unexpected finish — the Einsteins and the Quiztophers nosed ahead by one point to take the 21st Friends of the Library Trivia Challenge 81 to 80 at the Smiths Falls Legion on Sunday, Feb. 11. They were behind throughout the afternoon (just a little!) but the final category gave them the lead over The Grey Matter. Nineteen teams took the 100 question challenge.

Landon Hicks won the 50/50 draw at the 21st Friends of the Library Trivia Challenge Sunday at the Legion. In the true spirit of giving back to the community, Hicks, left, in Customer Care at Tweed, gave his winnings of $240 back to Friends of the Library chair, Katie Hoffman.
