The Crown Point Community Library is celebrating National Library Week (April 10-16) with its most popular community event,  “A Hole Lot of Fun” Library Mini Golf on Saturday,  from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The library will transform into an 18-hole miniature golf course for the day. The course will be set up throughout the first and second floors of the library, including a special “Family Fun Zone” in the meeting rooms that will feature FREE refreshments, games and more. Players of all ages will have “A Hole Lot of Fun” swinging their clubs through the library stacks!

Our previous mini golf event in 2017 was a great success! “We doubled our numbers, serving just under 2,000 people throughout the course of the day in the library.” said Laura Clemons, Communications Specialist and event chairperson. “We had over 450 golfers of all ages playing miniature golf and experiencing the library in a unique and entertaining way.”

All the proceeds from this unique fundraising got towards library programming for all ages. We are proud to have sponsored many programs for the community.

The cost of the event is $5 per person or $20 for a group of five. One round of golf (putters, balls, scorecards will be provided to players) and admission to the Family Fun Zone is included. This year, tickets will be sold at the Crown Point Library, beginning April 1, credit cards are accepted.

The month of April is also recognized as School Library Month (American Association of School Librarians) and the Friends of the Library will sponsor a hole decorating contest open to the Crown Point Schools.  “We had six schools participate at the last event, it was a real treat to see the creativity the schools brought to this event by decorating their golf holes!” said Clemons.  The public enjoyed it as well; the three winning schools received a cash prize to purchase books for their school library.

The library will be open for business during its normal Saturday hours, 9:00 – 5:00 p.m. Although there will be extra activity from the golfers and their fans, library staff will make every effort to provide the usual high level of service that the community expects. Patrons needing quiet library time are encouraged to visit the library on Friday or visit the Winfield Branch located at 10771 Randolph Street.

Library Mini Golf allows us to raise money for library programming for children, teen, and adults at the Crown Point Community Library and Winfield Branch Library. All the proceeds from this fundraising event will allow us to offer author/illustrator visits, literary impersonators, musicians and more to expand the traditional boundaries of library programming.

Our librarians have many ideas for new and exciting programs for the community. You can be part of our efforts by supporting this year’s “A Hole Lot of Fun” mini-golf fundraiser – a fun event for families and friends of all ages.

We are looking for raffle donations and sponsors. To promote your business or organization at the event contact Laura Clemons (219) 306-4599, email lclemons@crownpointlibrary.org or visit www.crownpointlibrary.org
