Browser Open looking for golf fans

The Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library are busy planning a fun and family friendly event on March 13, 2016: the second annual Browser Open. It will be a great antidote to late winter cabin fever. The fundraiser will feature a creative mini-golf course inside the library with 18 unique holes designed for children and adults.

Each hole is different and created by a different organization or business. Some examples from last year’s event included a toothbrush obstacle course, created by Fox Valley Dental Hygienists’ Society; a find-the-landmarks Wisconsin map, created by architect Tom Meiklejohn; and a rocket ship hole made by Upward Bound.

The Friends group invites support and participation from area businesses, community organizations, clubs and creative people. You or your organization can ...

  • Sponsor the Open either financially or with raffle donations
  • Join the Browser Open Task Force to help plan the event
  • Design and build one of the 18 holes: the crazier, the better!

For information about sponsorship or the task force, call Earl Jewett at (920) 923-2604 or Sue Lowther at (920) 922-9904. Information about the hole-design challenge is available from Dan Derge at (920) 923-4577. Information about the event in general is available at www.fdlpl.org/main/browser-open.

Proceeds from the Browser Open support the summer reading program and other special programming at the library. The Browser Open (named after the library’s furry mascot Browser the Dog) is planned and sponsored by the Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library, a nonprofit 501c(3) organization that promotes and encourages the use of library services by fundraising, supporting special events and providing programs for the community.
