Mini Links returns to public library

WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Public Library will again be transformed by the Friends of Woodstock Public Library into an 18-hole miniature golf course on March 15 and 16.

The course will travel all three levels of the library and includes a water hole, a trip up the elevator and down the back stairs.

There also will be a 19th hole where anyone may stop by and enjoy a slice of pizza or a refreshing drink.

This year, Mini Links also will feature a Friday night event, Library After Dark, that will include Mini Links, hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Attendees must be 21 years or older to attend.

Tickets for the Friday night event cost $25 a person and must be bought at the library in advance.

The traditional Saturday Mini Links will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (last tee time). Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children 8 and under. Tickets may be bought at the door.

Golf professionals from Bull Valley, Woodstock, Boulder Ridge and Prairie Isle country clubs will play a round in the afternoon. Participants who beat their scores will win prizes. Golfers who hit a hole-in-one at the designated hole will win a model car.

A raffle with prizes such as the Tower of Games, golf accessories, and Page for a Day for state Rep. Jack Franks will start at the library March 1, and tickets will be drawn at the end of the event. Winners need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
