Hi, all! This month, we have Summer Trivia hosted by the Mission Viejo Library once a week, on Friday! If you’d like to participate, please contact libraryprograms@cityofmissionviejo.org to receive the zoom link. 

I recently attended the Heroes and Villains trivia game, which was on July 16, 2021. It lasted about an hour, from 6:00 to 7:00, and it kept me engaged the entire time!
