As part of the Library's Summer Reading Program, Thursday, July 26, is Holyoke Public Library Night as the Blue Sox, Holyoke’s favorite baseball team, faces the Danbury Westerners at MacKenzie Stadium on Beech Street at 6:30 PM.
All tickets for that game are specially priced at just two dollars each (a saving of $4.00 on each ticket) and children five and under are free – making this a perfect opportunity to treat the family to an evening out as you support your new library and Holyoke’s own ball team.
Holyoke Public Library Board President, Terry Plum, will throw out the first ball for the evening. Mayor Alex Morse and several City Council members are expected to be on hand, together with Friends of the Holyoke Public Library, HPL Board members and other community leaders.
The 2013 Red Hyundai Elantra, provided by Gary Rome Hyundai, will be on display at the stadium that evening. Tickets for the “Drive into the Future” Raffle for a three-year lease on the vehicle will also be available for purchase. All proceeds from the drawing have been committed to the Holyoke Public Library’s Next Hundred Years Building Campaign.
