On Wednesday October 8th, new students were invited to get to know the Academy Library during a round of mini golf. Throughout the building we heard cheers, groans, and laughter as students made holes-in-one or tried different techniques to make it past the variety of obstacles. As they played the nine-hole course set up on multiple floors of the building, students learned about the services and collections the library offers to all Academy students.
The nine floor building can be an intimidating and challenging space to navigate and so the intention was to provide a fun and low-pressure way to become acquainted with the library staff and spaces. At each of the holes, students answered a trivia question about finding and borrowing library materials, ways to ask for research help, and more. The library’s ground floor featured a prize wheel where students had a fun way to learn even more about library resources. A tenth bonus hole was also set up in the Music Library where students had a chance to putt for prizes. Those that attended the event could turn in their completed scorecards for a chance to win Grill Bucks.
