Katie Pelkey, of Windsor, proudly wore a shirt saying "Dunder Mifflin" as she waited in line to sign her team in for trivia night at High Hops.

Pelkey said she had never been to one of the trivia nights the Clearview Library District holds at the brewery each month, but when she heard the theme was going to be "The Office," she had to come.

The Clearview Library District began holding trivia nights once a month at High Hops Brewery last year, and last week, for the district's first themed trivia night, the district broke its record for number of people attending.

The trivia night was centered on the television show, "The Office," and nearly 100 people registered, with about 30 still on the wait list when the trivia night began.

District staff said they were excited to see the turnout.

Jason Boak, adult services librarian with the Clearview Library and organizer of the event, said the trivia nights give the library a chance to interact with people who might not otherwise go to the library.

The library is more than just a building with books and media, Boak said, but also a provider of community service. Because the library works to meet the needs of all its patrons, sometimes that means just providing a little interactive, educational fun, like trivia nights at the brewery, he said.

The district partners with businesses in town when it can Boak said, and High Hops has been a solid supporter of the library.

Blake Johnson, a manager at High Hops, said the business likes supporting the community, and the trivia nights are a fun way to do that.

Even if people who come aren't drinking beer, Johnson said, it's encouraging residents to hang out and just enjoy each other's company.

"We're happy to be part of it," he said.
