CHARLESTON -- More than 50 participants went to the Charleston Carnegie Public Library on Tuesday. But it wasn't for the books.

Instead it was to play golf. Or, to be more specific, putt-putt.

Participants sometimes excelled, but more often struggled, as they weaved their wiffle golf balls through each of the nine courses, a few of which were developed by patrons of the library.

Three of the more popular courses were developed by the Frey, Stewart and Holloway families. 

Mini Golf in the Stacks is one of the many activities for children and families taking place at the library over the summer. See a complete June schedule with this story at jg-tc.com
