Go-Fore Golf! A fun event for the whole family at the Quarryville Library!

 

On Saturday, February 12, the library will not be open for business as usual … because we will be open for business as a miniature golf course!

All ages (and golfing abilities) are invited to come out of the cold and play a unique round of miniature golf through the stacks of the library! Our course is open from 10 am – 4 pm.


We're hiring!

We are looking for someone who is welcoming and energetic, flexible, reliable, and dedicated to teamwork and providing top-notch customer service to the patrons in our 10-municipality service area.
