Mini Golf in the Library! ¡Minigolf en la Biblioteca!
Saturday April 8, 2017  9:30 am - 3:30 pm

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, and then down to the Fiction Stacks, Level 1, and the Teen Room on the ground level. 

This is a family-friendly event. All ages welcome. $5 to play. Discount rate for young children ($3 for ages 5-12; under 5 free).  Tickets at the door, or in advance via Eventbrite.

For an example of how much FUN this can be for children, watch this short video of a mini golf in a CT library in October 2015:

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.

This mini-golf tournament is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library. Major funding is coming from local businesses that sponsor "holes" on the golf course or choose other ways to underwrite the event. Such sponsors are being announced on the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library's blog and Facebook pages as commitments are received.
