Important Notice

Tax-Exempt Status

Dear Supporters,

We regret to inform you of the revocation of Holyoke Public Library's (HPL) tax-exempt status by the IRS, effective November 15, 2023, due to compliance lapses exacerbated by challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, donations made after this date may not be tax-deductible, pending retroactive reinstatement. For those who donated to the library post-November 15, we offer refunds for your donation. Alternatively, we would be honored if you maintain your donation as a non-deductible contribution to support our ongoing efforts. We have taken steps to remove tax deductibility language from our communication channels, underscoring our commitment to transparency. We assure you that this change was unforeseen, and we are actively working to address the situation. Despite this setback, we remain fully committed to our mission and the causes we serve. Your support has always been instrumental in driving our efforts forward, and we are immensely grateful for your generosity and dedication.

Warm regards,
George Mettey
