Staff at the Nappanee Public Library will shut down operations and transform the stacks and stairs of the Library into an 18-hole miniature golf course on all three levels of the building, beginning Friday, Nov. 7.
NPL is once again working with corporate sponsors to offer the unique event to the community on Nov. 7-8 to raise funds for the Friends of the Library.
