Mini Golf in the Library!

Come play miniature golf inside the Holyoke Public Library!  Save this date:

Saturday April 9, 2016  9:30 am-4 pm
Last tee-off: 3:30 pm

An 18-hole course has been designed. The first four tees and putting greens will be on Level 4, in and around the Non-fiction stacks and Reference stacks. The 5th hole will be on Level 3, near an exhibit of historic photos of the old Mt. Tom Golf Club. Play will continue through many holes in the Children's Room on Level 2, and then down the stairs to the Fiction Stacks, Level 1, and the Teen Room on the ground level. The 18th hole will lead to the Community Room for refreshments and raffle. Don't miss this unique event organized by the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library. 

This is a family-friendly event. All ages welcome.  $5 to play. Discount rate for young children.

Library services will be open the usual Saturday hours (8:30 am-4 pm). Certain area (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, which in turn provides support for library programs and services. Major funding will come from local businesses that sponsor "holes" on the golf course or choose other ways to underwrite the event. Such sponsors will be announced here and on signs in the Library.  Stay turned.

We also ask you to save Friday evening April 8 for a related event, especially if you want to preview the course and practice your skills. And, if you'd like to volunteer to help with course set-up Friday afternoon, let us know.
