The New Rochelle Public Library, 1 Library Plaza, will double as a mini golf course this Saturday, March 11, 2023. The public is invited to drop in to play a round of golf anytime between 10:00 am and 3:30 pm. The library will also be open for business as usual during regular hours, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
The course, set up by a professional mini golf company and made possible through the support of the New Rochelle Public Library Foundation, will wind through the stacks on all three floors of the library. “We look forward to the community enjoying this added attraction to the Library this weekend”, said Tom Geoffino, Library Director, “We hope everyone will take advantage of this opportunity to see the Library in a new way as they play the course, and then stay around to enjoy everything else the Library offers”, said Geoffino.
Hungry golfers will be able to purchase food from Tacos El Carrito who will be set up outside the Library. Patrons can also visit a downtown New Rochelle restaurant, many of which will be offering specials during New Rochelle Downtown BID’s Restaurant Appreciation Week taking place March 10 - 17.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration requested at bit.ly/SatMiniGolf_03_2023
The New Rochelle Public Library (NRPL) is a community resource that seeks to improve the life of every citizen in our city. The Library offers a comprehensive print and digital collection that includes retrospective and current materials, up-to-date technology for public use, and a wide range of community services and programs tailored to a diverse audience. Chartered in 1894, NRPL is a school-district library with its own operating budget and a Board of Trustees composed of seven elected members. It has served the 81,500 residents of New Rochelle from its Main Library building in the downtown business district since 1979. A smaller branch, located in the park in front of the New Rochelle High School, was restored through a grassroots effort and currently operates as the Huguenot Children’s Library.
