The “Brain Buster” trivia event is the Branch’s signature annual fund raiser. It is typically held in January on a Saturday afternoon.  Teams of up to six reserve a table for $90 and have friendly competition.  Costumes are encouraged.  Prizes and refreshments add to the enjoyment of all.  Funds raised are used to sponsor student scholarships at Central Lakes College and to sponsor national leadership training for college women from the Brainerd Lakes area.

Go to for photos of previous years.  The January 2024 Brain Buster will be Saturday, January 20th!
