POCATELLO – The Idaho State University Oboler Library is holding its annual book sale and miniature golf fundraiser on the first weekend in February in the Library located at 850 S. Ninth Ave., Pocatello.
The miniature golf course will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sat, Feb 7. The book sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat, Feb. 7, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sun, Feb 8.
This year’s book sale offers thousands of books of all types, on a wide variety and academic topics, as well as works of popular and literary fiction. Most of the book sale items originate with books donated to the Library by faculty and other members of the community. The Library evaluates all donated books and identifies those that should be added to its collections. Those that are not destined to become part of the collections are set aside to be sold.
Participants can play the 18-hole miniature golf course with their friends or family and have lunch, too. Tickets for golf are $3 ISU students with valid Bengal ID cards, $5 all others and $20 for family. Elevators are available. Teams of four players are invited to compete for the first-, second- and third-place prizes. All players can participate in other contests like “closest to the hole” and “a hole in one.” Prizes will be randomly awarded throughout the day.
Lunch of bratwurst or hotdogs, chips, and water or soda will be available for purchase at low prices all day on Saturday.
Businesses or individuals can support the Library by sponsoring a hole, putting a business or name on the scorecard, or by making a donation. For more information about sponsorships or the events, please call 282-2997, or visit www.isu.edu/library/
All proceeds from miniature golf will be used for furnishing student study areas in the library. Proceeds from the book sale are dedicated to building the Library’s collections. The events are hosted by Friends of Oboler Library in partnership with ISU Libraries.
