Join us as we host an 18-hole miniature golf course fundraiser at the Library for a day of family fun. This unique adventure will have golfers of all ages putting throughout the Library, between the stacks, through the reading areas, and down the stairs from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, March 14. There will also be a 19th Hole entertainment area for players with refreshments, entertainment, games, and a raffle for fun prizes. The fee to play is $5 per person or $20 for a family of 4 or more.
The Foundation thanks all the organizations that have agreed to support the event with a sponsorship. Click here for more information and to secure your spot as a sponsor.
This event is a fundraiser for the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation (MPPLF). The MPPLF provides funding to the Library for special programs and projects that are otherwise unattainable with tax dollars.
