Leventhal Map Center and BPL Special Collections Trivia Night

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Description

The Leventhal Map & Education Center and the Department of Special Collections at the Boston Public Library invite you to the second installation of our jointly sponsored trivia night, where we challenge you to discover the collections of the Boston Public Library and learn more about the history of the city of Boston.

Some of the trivia rounds will feature a geographic scavenger hunt using Atlascope, the Map Center's user-friendly tool that provides access to hundreds of historic maps of Boston and surrounding areas. Others will feature images and objects from the Special Collections departments available in Digital Commonwealth.

Registration is encouraged but not required. You may participate individually or as a member of a team. Teams are responsible for their own coordination over chat or phone in answering and submitting questions.

Prizes of maps of Boston will be awarded to winning teams.

Registration is optional but recommended; visit the Eventbrite page to sign up.

The event will be broadcast over the Leventhal Map & Education Center's YouTube channel and Facebook Live.
