caddystacks_sold_out For one night, it was like the Masters at the Library, or at least the masters of mini golf. The Library was turned into a very unique mini golf course featuring our extensive collection. The Caddy Stacks mini golf event was a fundraiser for a new aquarium for Kids' World and a chance to see the Library in a whole new way. From the big blue monster that welcomed all to Kids' World to the stunning floral display from Sylvia's Flowers, the entire building was transformed.   We'd like to thank our participants and sponsors for their support of this event. Local businesses and individuals who made contributions include: Arlington Heights Management Group Arlington Heights Park District Arlington Park Arlington Theaters Brian Properties Birch River Grill California Pizza Kitchen Drost Kivlahan McMahon & O'Connor LLC Friends of the Library Javier's Sabor Mexicano & Agave Bar Meredith Carlton Kramer Metropolis Performing Arts Centre Northwest Speech and Hearing Center Ltd.
