Books for Kids Trivia Night will be 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Quad City Botanical Center, 2525 4th Ave., Rock Island. Cost is $10 per person. There also will be chances to bid on Jimi Hendrix photos, signed by the artist on his last tour, and an autograph signing by Booker Edgerson, former player for the Buffalo Bills. Proceeds will be used for the Lorene Evans Watts Memorial Fund for Children’s Materials of the Rock Island Public Library Foundation to support children’s services and materials at the Rock Island Public Library. The fund was set up by Eudell Watts III, holding some of the books in the library's children selections, to honor his late mother, a Rock Island educator and former president of the library board of trustees. For information or to reserve a table, call Rock Island Library (309) 732-7305 or email Dinwiddie.kellie@rigov.org .
