University Libraries will host the Second Annual Malpass Mini-Golf on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Leslie F. Malpass Library.

"We received so many positive comments after last year's event," said Michael Jones '12, Director of Development for University Libraries. "We are excited about this year's event, and have modified the course, along with adding a few fun wrinkles."

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for students with ID and $3 for children 10 and under.

According to Jones, "Mini-golf is a fun, group activity for people of all ages. We are thrilled to host an event that students, alumni and families from the community can attend, while raising funds for the University Libraries." Proceeds will once again benefit the Library Atrium Society, which aids in the expansion of educational resources for students, faculty, staff and the general public. Last year's event raised nearly $2,500, which was used to purchase 10 iPads for the Curriculum Library.

The Leslie F. Malpass Library will be transformed into a giant miniature golf course, featuring 12 themed-holes throughout the building's six floors. "Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we are able to give out more prizes, supply snacks and provide entertainment to those waiting their turn," said Jones. A few sponsorship opportunities are still available, and those interested can contact Michael Jones at (309) 298-2356 or via e-mail at
