The Scranton Public Library will bring back its Mini Golf fundraiser on Sunday, Jan. 30, from noon to 4 p.m. This family-friendly event will take place at the Albright Memorial Library on 500 Vine St., Scranton and the Lackawanna County Children’s Library, next door. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit library programs and services for children.
People of all ages can enjoy playing 18 holes of mini golf right in the library. Each course is designed to use the library’s bookshelves, ramps, and open spaces to create a one-of-a-kind mini golf experience.
Putter and golf balls will be provided. Guests can also take a chance on raffle baskets.
Face masks are strongly recommended to be worn by participants ages 2 and up, in accordance with CDC guidelines. Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the libraries for guests to use. Putters and golf balls will be sanitized after each player.
“Having our Mini Golf event in January provides families a day’s entertainment to do something fun in the winter. By taking some extra safety measures, we are happy to again offer this event while also raising awareness that the library is open and safe and offers essential services to children and families,” said Scott Thomas, CEO of the Scranton Public Library.”
