MACOMB, IL – Come out and have a "hole" lot of fun—and help raise money for a good cause—at the Western Illinois University Leslie F. Malpass Library's upcoming Malpass Mini-Golf fundraiser. According to University Libraries Development Director Michael Jones, the inaugural Malpass Mini-Golf event will be held from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

"The Malpass Library will be transformed into a miniature golf course for the evening, with holes on each of our six floors, showcasing everything University Libraries has to offer," Jones said. "We are excited to host a fun, family event and raise money for University Libraries at the same time."

Malpass Mini-Golf is open to the public, and cost for admission is $5 for adults, $4 for WIU students with their student IDs and $3 for children 10 and under. Jones said the funds raised from the event will go toward the Library Atrium Society Fund, which supports miscellaneous operation expenses, as well as books and equipment.

Sponsors for the inaugural Malpass Mini-Golf are listed below.
