One More Question!

Question: What do you get when you mix a great bunch of volunteers, eight teams of people ready to have fun and questions intended to expose those deep dark portions of your memory?

Answer: Another successful VIRN Inclusive Trivia Challenge!

Eight teams came out to have fun and answer questions ranging from too easy to forehead smacking, tip of your tongue difficult. And in the end, it was all in good fun.

Team CereBellas was victorious after gambling hugely on their answer to the final question.

Congratulations! to the Cerebellas and thanks to all the teams who participated.

Like all VIRN events, volunteers make it happen!

“A big thank you goes out to the dedicated group of volunteers for making our Inclusive Trivia Challenge an awesome event each year.

See all of you next year, and remember to bring a friend or two along!!

Everyone Has Something to Share

VIRN has been offering the Tech-Ease program for over ten years. We pride ourselves on sharing information about tools and technology to help the community of people who are vision impaired, their family and friends have equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through public library services, use GPS for mobility and independent travel and much more.

Next Tech-Ease Drop-In is: Monday, May 1st
Millennium Library
Anhang Room on the 2nd Floor
251 Donald Street, Winnipeg
Southeast Corner of Donald & Graham

Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Note: Please bring your own ear buds to all Tech-Ease drop-in sessions to help us eliminate distractions from interfering with each other.

Although it isn’t necessary, if you would let VIRN know a few days before coming then it will help us and make it easier to bring someone who can answer your question(s) then or work with you on the device you have brought along.

Technology helps to keep us connected, informed and is inclusive.

Empowering Our Community

"Stop Bullying"

When someone misuses his or her power with an intention to be hurtful to you, it can feel miserable. Figuring out how to use the power you already have within to protect yourself can be life-changing.
