WAYNE, NJ – Earlier this month, the Wayne Public Library held a mini-golf fundraiser to raise money to offset the cost of upgrading the children’s story room. In September, the library installed new carpeting, and now the children’s room needs a facelift.
On Friday night it was an adult’s only party with wine, beer and appetizers for the guests who enjoyed an evening of fun playing mini golf in the library.
Yes, the library set up an 18-hole mini golf course in and around the stacks throughout the library. Some competition was in play as Mayor Vergano, Councilman David Verano and other town dignitaries and residents putted their way around the bookshelves.
On Saturday was the family event with kids joining in the fun with their parents and grandparents.
World-famous (at least in his own head) family magician and balloon artist extraordinaire, Ferris The Great, whose name is eerily similar to the guy typing this article right now, performed a fun magic show and provided some of the World’s Greatest Balloon Animals to help make the day even more fun.
Doreen Shoba, the Library Director was happy with the outcome of the two-day event. “What a success! On behalf of the Wayne Library Foundation and the library staff, I want to extend a heart-felt thank you all of our sponsors and supporters for their commitment to making this event so successful,” she said.
“It was the vision of the Library Foundation and the planning committee to inform, entertain and raise funds in order to upgrade the Children’s story room,” said Shoba. “Your generous contribution helped make our vision a reality by helping to offset the cost of the desired children’s furniture. As we move forward with current and future projects, please know that partnerships with our sponsors and supporters, are vital to the success of this library.”
