Studying hard on Reading Day? Take a break in the Main Library to play a 9-hole round of mini-golf in the Main Library Reference stacks. Borrow one of our putters or bring your own. And, of course, we have golf pencils and scorecards. When you're done playing, drop your scorecard in for a drawing for 2 passes for a full round of golf at the UGA Golf Course.
