If you make a hole in one ... yes, your gallery can roar

The Grayslake Area Public Library will hold a Mini-Golf Outing and Wine and Craft Beer Tasting fund-raiser at the library on Saturday, March 9.

The event is sponsored by the Grayslake Library Foundation and will have a family-friendly competition in the afternoon and adult-only event in the evening.

Tee off in the TeenSpace, bogey in the Biographies, or eagle in the Easy Readers, it’s all fun, no matter what your skill level.

The afternoon session runs from 1-4 p.m. and is open to all ages. Children will receive free ice cream at the 19th hole, sponsored by Ace Hardware of Grayslake and Round Lake Beach.

Then an adult-only competition will follow in the evening from 7-11 p.m. that will include craft beer and wine tasting and appetizers, catered by the Vine of Grayslake.

“Laughter, cheer, good-hearted competition and even fist-pumping are welcome on this day at the library,” said library director Roberta Thomas.

Players will also receive their own golf balls, sponsored by State Bank of the Lakes, and water bottles, sponsored by Grayslake Rehabilitation, until supplies run out.

Space is limited and tickets are available starting now at the library — cash or check only. Tickets for the family afternoon session are $5 each and include ice cream for children.

Participants must be 21-over to attend the evening event and the ticket cost is $20.

The library will remain open for regular business hours of 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

However, mini-golf will take place on both floors and library patrons will be course hazards.

Patrons needing quiet library time are encouraged to visit the library either Friday or Sunday that weekend.
