I Bogied at DGPL

Often. But I had a great time playing Library Mini Golf at the Downers Grove Public Library on March 8, as did hundreds of other people on LMG’s biggest course yet (a full 18 holes across two floors). Check out the pictures from the day in my Flickr set to see just how much fun we all had. I’ll be including the event as a case study in my next issue of Library Technology Reports on gaming in libraries, which I’m currently writing.

DGPL Library Mini Golf

The DGPL staff, Friends group, and the Library Mini Golf crew (Rick, John, and Bob) all did an amazing job on this totally amazing event!

  2. This gives a whole new take on gaming in libraries. One that I would like to participate in.

  3. Sharon, I appreciate all of the hard work done by the staff, Friends, and LMG folks to put on the event. You folks really outdid yourselves – it was great, and I can’t wait for the next one!

    Margaret – you’d love it! :)

  4. It looked like a lot of fun. However, I went to the LMG site and could not find any contact information. Do you know? Could you post it?

  6. Library USAGE continues to rise…library FUNDING continues to decline.
    Isn’t it about time someone got a clue…?
