FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library are hosting a miniature golf event on Sunday, April 2.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Admission is $5 per person or $20 per family. Advance tickets for families can be purchased online. All ages are welcome, however, participants age 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Although this popular event has run at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library in the past, Event Chair Jacqui Coghlan says, “The Friends are excited for the change in venue this year, and the chance to play mini-golf in the stacks at the Main Library.”
Coghlan encourages kids to look for the practice holes set up at both libraries.
In existence since 2003, The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the partnership between the Fairfield Public Library and the community, and advocating for quality library service for all of the people of the town of Fairfield. Over the past 13 years, The Friends have provided over $300,000 to the Library to support special programs, services and resources not included in the operating budget, including a commitment to fund the Library’s museum pass program with $10,000 a year for 10 years.
The Friends sponsor the Fairfield Public Library’s One Book One Town celebration and its Soundwaves Concert Series. They also manage the Bruce S. Kershner Art Gallery, and oversee the ongoing sale of gently used books, tapes and CD’s in The Twice READ Room, both at the Main Library. The Friends also offer a Books as Gifts program which allows people to honor or remember a loved one with a bookplate placed in a new book to be added to the Library’s collection.
