At its 30th annual Trivia Challenge fundraiser on November 7, 2018, the Rotary Club of Ventura South raised approximately $5,000 for the Ventura County Library’s Adult Literacy Program. Twenty-four three-person teams competed in the Jeopardy-like event, answering trivia questions ranging from science to popular culture to sports to history. Entry/sponsorship fees were $300 per team.

Teams were divided into divisions, and the trophy winners included Channel Islands High School Seniors (Youth Division), Rotary Club of Camarillo (Service Club Division), MJP Computers (Business division), Beat the Library/Court of Appeals (Community Division), and David Corona (Spectator Division).

The Library’s Adult Literacy Program provides a variety of resources to adults seeking to strengthen their reading ability including free one-to-one tutoring, free books, special programs for dyslexic adults, computer-assisted instruction, second language reading instruction, and family literacy activities.
