On Friday, January 24, the Glen Ellyn Public Library will host Swinging Thru the Stacks, 18 holes of miniature golf stationed throughout the library. Library cardholders, community members, families, neighbors and friends of the Glen Ellyn community are encouraged to assemble teams of four and test their golfing skills through challenging holes themed after The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, the Winter Olympics and more!
All participants will be eligible to compete for one of two awards: the adult (ages 13 and up) who achieves the best score will be awarded the second annual Glen Ellyn Cup. This custom-made award measures over 14-inches high and is constructed out of solid metal. The child (ages 3-12) who achieves the best score will be awarded the Glen Ellyn Youth Cup (which shares identical measurements and construction as the Glen Ellyn Cup).
The Friends of the Library will also be hosting a special Used Book Sale in the library’s basement during the event, between 4 and 8 pm.
Swinging Thru the Stacks participants may golf anytime between 4:00 and 8:00 pm. Golfing requires a $5.00 donation to help fund special library events.
The Glen Ellyn Public Library will close from 3:00 to 4:00 pm to set up the event.
