How many times have you run an LMG event?

Since our first in 2006 and through April 30, 2015, there have been over 175 Library Mini Golf events that we have hosted in 25 states from Maine to California. We can do events any time of the year, but most events run throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring.

How do you help the Library prepare before the event?

Over the years and mostly from our clients, we have accumulated an amazing number of great ideas and they have been compiled into a best practices booklet that we will send you to help start the process.

Several weeks before your event, we will send you the first hole to set up in your lobby. It serves as a great way to let your patrons know about the upcoming event and helps recruit sponsors. As your sponsor commitments come in, we update a web page for your event on our site with sponsor logos. The more support you have early, the easier it is for businesses to feel comfortable supporting the event. It’s a lot like building a shopping mall, once you have the first few anchors, the rest are much easier to secure. We can also help you with other marketing ideas. Just ask!

How long does it take to set up a typical course?

We will need about a half dozen volunteers to help us set up the course and with the new design we will be using for all events beginning in the fall of 2015,  it will usually take about 2 hours to set up the course. We will need about the same number of helpers to break down, but takes much less time than the setup, typically an hour or less.

What does a library need to do to get started to host a Library Mini Golf event?

Contact us! We'll help you get started right away. There are still many weekend dates in 2015 available. We do recommend starting the process about 3 to 4 months before the date of the event. This allows enough time to line up the maximum number of sponsors to make the event a success. Please call 203.375.3432 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Eastern and or send an email. (see our full contact info)

Is there anything else I should know?

LMG is delighted to help libraries and other institutions offer their communities a great way to spend a few hours with family and friends while providing financial support, particularly in these tough economic times for all non-profit organizations. We'll supply everything you need for your community to have a wonderful day at your building while you raise significant funds.

How do I send you my sponsors' logos?

Artwork should be emailed to rick@libraryminigolf.com in digital format. Any format will be accepted (.jpg, .gif, .pdf, .png, .tiff, .eps, .ai, .psd - to name some of the more common formats.) File sizes should be a minimum of 50Kb and maximum of 5Mb, keeping in mind that the larger the file size, the better looking a logo will be on signage. If in doubt, however, send what you have and we will advise you. If a sponsor uses a company that prints their business graphics, the printer can assist in providing files. The logos will be used on the scorecard (approximately 2" wide).
