Mini Golf in the Library? September 15, 2008

Posted by cynhudson in Fun Stuff, Innovation in Libraries, Library Stuff.

So I don’t know how many of our readers also read the blog The Shifted Librarian (if you don’t you should definitely check it out), but Jenny has an interesting post about how some libraries have experimented with mini golfing in the library with pretty good success in terms of both patron turnout and funds raised from the event.

After reading the post, I was most struck by the fact that they charge library patrons to participate.  I understand that the point of the event was to raise money, but it seems out of place during a time when many libraries throughout the country are currently hosting game nights, “Dance, Dance Revolution” parties, and a host of other events for free simply as outreach intiatives.

What are you thoughts?  Does mini golf have a place in the library?
