CROWN POINT | Calling all avid readers and avid golfers - miniature golf is coming to the Crown Point Community Library.
The first ever “A Hole Lot of Fun” mini golf event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The new library at 122 N. Main St. will be transformed into an 18-hole miniature putting course for the day.
The course will be set up throughout the first and second floors, including a special “19th Hole” in the meeting rooms that will feature refreshments, games and more.
Cost is $5 a player or $20 for a group of five, and golfers will have a “hole lot of fun” winding their way through book stacks, hallways, reading areas and stairwells.
The library will be open for business during its normal Saturday hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Although there will be extra hubbub from the golfers and their fans, library staff will make every effort to provide the usual high level of service to the community.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Molley the Trolley will load up passengers free at Wheeler Middle School and take them to the library to play golf. The trolley will run every 30 minutes between the two locations until 3 p.m.
“We are so excited for this event. It is so unique and the entire staff can’t wait to see the public move throughout the library play miniature golf”, said Laura Clemons, communications specialist. “The golf committee is made up of six staff members including our director, Lynn Frank.
"We have been working hard to make this fundraising event spectacular for our community. I hope everyone gets a chance to visit the library that day to play golf and enjoy the food and games in the 19th Hole Food & Fun Zone.”
Proceeds will support programming and events for children, teens and adults at both the Crown Point and Winfield branch libraries.
