Our first Mini Golf event (April 2016) was a big success: people of all ages enjoyed playing 18 holes of miniature golf inside the library, and the event raised over $6K. This wonderful community event has now become an Annual FUN raiser and Fundraiser. See Sandy Ward's PHOTO albums for 2016201720182019, and 2022. See also photographer Steven Nanton's 35 photos on MassLive, April 6, 2019. 

Major funding comes from local businesses and donors that sponsor "holes" on the golf course or choose other ways to underwrite the event. Funds raised through ticket sales and sponsorships (and an auction) help enhance library programming and services, especially for teens and children.


The 18-hole course: The first four tees and putting greens are on the top floor (Level 4) in and around the Non-fiction stacks and Reference stacks. Play continues 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.

Event Sponsors and Hole Sponsors make this wonderful event possible.  

Would you like to become a Sponsor?  Please see the 2023 Sponsorship letter & form or contact Nancy Kocsmiersky, HPL Development Office, 413-420-8109 or nancy@holyokelibrary.org. Thanks!Myles at the 18th hole, with giraffe
