MINI GOLF AT THE LIBRARY

 

And a grand time was had by all!

Everyone enjoyed the 18 hole course designed and installed by the Friends of the Library on all three floors.  There were rockets and dinosaurs, Dr. Seus, the jungle, thrillers and romance, travel and gardening, among others.  Thanks to all who helped out and everyone who came and had a good time!
