Round Up the Know-it-Alls... It's Trivia Night Time!


It's time once again for Trivia Night, to benefit the Christian County Library Foundation. This year's event will be held on Saturday, February 11, at Fremont Hills Country Club. Tickets will be on sale beginning Friday, January 6, at the Christian County Library in Ozark.

Players will compete in teams of eight with the others seated at their table, so round up seven more friends, family members, and/or co-workers who you know are filled with otherwise useless knowledge and get your tickets as quickly as you can. Tables are limited, and ticket sales will be first-come, first-sold.

Find out more about this event and the soon-to-be-announced lineup of the Foundation's 2017 events on our EVENTS page.

Support the Foundation with the Online Shopping You're Already Doing



The Christian County Library Foundation is proud to be a part of Amazon Smile!

How does it work? Just point your browser to smile.amazon.com instead of Amazon.com and log into your Amazon account. You will be prompted to select the charitable organization of your choice. Simply enter "Christian County Library Foundation" in the search box and select us.


Once selected, you can shop just like you normally would. Amazon Smile has the same products at the same prices as the regular Amazon website. You even get your Prime membership benefits if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber. The only difference is that by using Amazon Smile and selecting the Foundation as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the cost of your eligible purchases to the Foundation. You continue to shop like you normally would and Amazon gives back.

There's no better time to start using Amazon Smile. The holidays are right around the corner. What better gift to give the Foundation than the gift of selecting the Christian County Library Foundation as the recipient of Amazon's charitable giving while you do your online shopping!

Check out Amazon Smile for full program details.

During this one day of online giving, donors can visit the Christian County Library Foundation's Give Ozarks page between 12:00am the morning of Tuesday, May 3 and 11:59pm that evening and make your donation.

The following day, Wednesday May 4, the Library Foundation will be hosting a Library Lock Up in the Netzer Room at the Christian County Library. "Inmates" are asked to call on others and solicit donations on behalf of the Foundation in order to raise the funds needed to post bail and be released. We are still looking for volunteers to be locked up for this event. If you are willing to participate, please contact the Christian County Library at (417) 581-2432 or speak with any of the Foundation directors to choose a time to be locked up.
