Mini golf for mega fun

HB4116

Families could play nine holes last week at our Main Branch.

Each mini-golf hole was themed after a different children’s book, including favorites like Harry Potter and Captain Underpants.

Afterward, golfers grabbed a cup of hot chocolate, and the winners had their photo taken for our Wall of Fame.

By the way, thanks to Dairy Queen for letting us borrow their clubs and balls.
