YORKVILLE — What better way to fight winter doldrums and cabin fever than a little golf?

That’s exactly what the Yorkville Public Library is proposing from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26.

And it really is a little golf — mini-golf, to be exact, and the holes will be integrated throughout the library for people of all ages. The Yorkville Library is at 902 Game Farm Road, next to City Hall.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, organizers are hoping the event will raise needed money for the library, and also give people a chance to see the facility, viewing books between shots or putting between reads. The 18 holes will move through both floors of the library, beginning on the second floor with the first nine, including a hole that winds down the staircase and takes golfers to the back nine on the first floor.

After finishing all 18, golfers get free popcorn, courtesy of West Suburban Bank. Many other local businesses have donated money or labor to the event.

The event costs $5 a person, and tickets will be available at the door that day. Children ages 10 and under must have adult supervision.

Specifically, funds collected at the event will benefit children’s programs.
