Mini Golf in the Library! Minigolf en la Biblioteca
Our first Mini Golf event (April 2016) was a big success: people of all ages enjoyed playing golf inside the library, and the event raised over $6K. The Friends of the Library board voted to do it again in 2017. Mark your calendar for these two events in our Second Annual Mini Golf in the Library! fundraiser:

Friday April 7, 2017,

Mini Golf in the Library!  ¡Minigolf en la Biblioteca!
Family-friendly. All ages welcome. $5 to play. 
Discount rate for young children ($3 for ages 5-12; under 5 free).  

(See Facebook and/or Eventbrite)

Come play miniature golf inside the Holyoke Public Library!  18 holes!

The first four tees and putting greens will be on the top floor (Level 4) in and around the Non-fiction stacks and Reference stacks. Play will continue down the stairs and throughout the Children's Room on Level 2,

then down to the Fiction Stacks, Level 1, and the Teen Room on the ground level. Don't miss this special event organized by the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library. 

Holyoke Public Library services will be open the usual Saturday hours (8:30 am-4 pm). Certain areas (for instance, the Computer Room) will be undisturbed by the golf course.

Mini Golf in the Library! is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library. Major funding is coming from local businesses and donors that sponsor "holes" on the golf course or choose other ways to underwrite the event (see below). Funds raised through ticket sales and sponsorships (and also a silent auction during Friday night's cocktail party/mini-golf preview) will be used by the Friends to support programming and services at the Library, especially for teens and children.

VOLUNTEERS are welcome, especially April 7-8; see  http://signup.com/go/Ys8b9b
