Caddy Stacks All Ages Mini Golf is Back!

Friday–Sunday, Jan 26-28, bring your A-game and come putt-putt on our 18-hole, community-built golf course that winds throughout the library!

Caddy Stacks, the Library Foundation’s wildly popular fundraiser, is taking inspiration this year from Wonder, our Read Across Lawrence book by R.J. Palacio.

The course will feature the people, places, and things that make our community wonderful. Caddy Stacks happens only every 2 years — don’t miss it! All proceeds support community literacy programs at your library.

The library will close early at 6 PM on Friday, Jan 26.

MORE INFO: Visit www.caddystacks.com or contact Kathleen Morgan at kmorgan@lplks.org. Special thanks to Billy Pilgrim for designing this year’s invitations!

Shortly thereafter, Yuri’s figure skating idol Viktor Nikiforov appears in Hasetsu to take Yuri on as his student.

One of the immediate appeal factors of Yuri On Ice!!!, without a doubt, is Yuri’s relatability as a person, such as with his family and his friends. Another factor is the realness and quality of the writing. To be honest, I have not been this entranced by a television show in some time; since they’ve wrapped their first season, here are some titles that share similar qualities to that of the history-making Yuri On Ice!!!   Read More..
