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!

Be Socia­ble, Share!

  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?
