Families Tee Off at Warner Library

Children and adults enjoying themselves at  Warner Library's Headless Halloween Mini-Golf event.Warner Library kicked off the area’s Halloween festivities on Saturday, September 27th, with a crowd-pleasing day of spooky indoor miniature golf. All 19 holes (two 9-hole courses and a 10th hole shared by each) were designed, created, and decorated by members of the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow community, and provided players with a variety of challenges. The course – set up on the main floor as well as down in the Children’s Room – included a replica of the New NY Bridge, a hole bathed in black light, tracks bringing balls down stairs and through shelves of books, and more.

Over 2,500 people came to the Library for the event. “We wanted to create something new and special for Halloween that was for both kids and adults,” said library director Maureen Petry. “We were hoping to engage the community and have them come into the library and enjoy the event –  and they did. They responded.”

The event ran from 10:00 am in the morning until 4:00 pm in the afternoon, and then reopened at 6:00 pm with more horrific and gruesome decorations aimed at a more adult crowd. It kicked off when Sleepy Hollow Mayor Ken Wray competed against Tarrytown Village Trustee Rebecca McGovern in the inaugural annual inter-village Halloween Mini-Golf Cup Challenge. McGovern defeated Wray and won the cup for Tarrytown.

All proceeds for the Warner Library Headless Halloween Mini-Golf event went to the Library and will be put towards future renovations of the third floor community rooms.
