The LPGA gathered at the Plympton Library last Friday. This was Plympton’s own LPGA, the Little Player Golf League. Library Director Michael Slawson creatively collected library equipment to transition the library into a mini golf course. The dictionary collection, wallowing in obsolescence, served as boundaries for some holes. A collection of artificial plants added green foliage. Plant holders and legos served as obstacles. Whatever the challenge, the young golfers conquered with abundant smiles and successes.
Children arrived at their personal tee time. With the wisdom of an experienced golfer, Mr. Mike anticipated the need to spread the arrival times of the golfers.
Throughout the morning, Mr. Mike offered advice and guided golfers from hole to hole. Regular comments like “Good Job,” or “I did it,” resonated through the library. More than one golfer suggested that their moms or dads should also participate. If frustration abounds among adult golfers, none existed here. Each shot was an occasion for a proud smile.
The library will sponsor another mini golf program during February vacation. The program will occur on Friday, Feb. 25. Tee times are currently available.
