MACOMB, IL – Come out and have a "hole" lot of fun at a family-friendly event and help raise money for a good cause at the Western Illinois University Leslie F. Malpass Library's Malpass Mini-Golf fundraiser. According to University Libraries Development Director Michael Jones, the second annual Malpass Mini-Golf event will be held from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.

"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 money raised will once again benefit the Library Atrium Society, which helps fund 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.

Sponsors for the second annual Malpass Mini-Golf are listed below.
