Glen Ellyn Public Library will host Swinging Thru the Stacks, an 18 hole miniature golf challenge stationed throughout the library, from 4 to 8 p.m. Jan. 24. The library will be closed from 3 to 4 p.m. for staff to set up the course.
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 on the course, which will have holes themed after The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, 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 Glen Ellyn Cup, a custom-made award measuring more than 14-inches high and constructed out of solid metal. The child (ages 3-12) who achieves the best score will be awarded the Glen Ellyn Youth Cup (which looks just like the Glen Ellyn Cup).
“Swinging Thru the Stacks is one of the Glen Ellyn Public Library’s most popular events,” library spokesperson Anthony McGinn said. “I’m hopeful that this year’s participants will be delighted with the exciting surprises we have in store for them.”
Swinging Thru the Stacks participants may golf anytime between 4 and 8 p.m. Cost is $5, which goes toward special events at the library.
