Friends Board meetings

The Friends board will meet on Monday, December 5, 2016, 5:30 - 7:00pm in the Library.  These meeting are open; please join us if you are interested in the Friends group and how we function. We make decisions about what projects to undertake, how to raise funds (e.g., our Mini Golf event in April), what library services and programs to support with the funds we've raised, and what supplemental programs or activities to organize (e.g., an author talk, a poetry reading, or a games day).

Typically we meet on the 4th Monday of each month. But for November-December 2016, because of holiday schedules and conflicts, we chose to have a single combined meeting on Monday, December 5th.

Subsequent meetings dates as currently scheduled on 4th Mondays in 2017:
January 23, 2017
February 27, 2017
March 27, 2017
April 24, 2017
May 22, 2017
June 26, 2017

Mini Golf in the Library, again!

We are happy to announce that plans are underway for another Mini Golf fundraiser, a.k.a. FUN raiser.  Mark your calendars now:

 Saturday April 8, 2017,  9:30am - 3:30pm
Mini Golf in the Library
250 Chestnut St, Holyoke, MA

$5 Adults; $3 for ages 5-12; children under 5 are FREE.

The Friends of Holyoke Public Library invite you to come play Miniature Golf in the Library and thereby help us raise funds in support of library services and programs for youth.

Last spring's event was delightful, and raised over $6K, thanks to generous sponsors (Hole sponsors and Event Sponsors), donors of silent auction items, and the over 200 people who played the game.

If interested in being a Sponsor in 2017, please email  Our 2017 Mini Golf Chair (Sandy Ward) will let you know what sponsorship opportunities are available.
