Support the Library


Your help is needed! 

The Holyoke Library continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in our library and in supporting our patrons.
With your assistance, we will be able to continue to serve those in our community.
**Please consider donating today.  Any donation no matter how small is appreciated.  Thank you.


Matching Gifts - Double your donation!

Many companies match their employee’s charitable gifts. You can pick up a matching gift form from your human resources department, fill it out and send it to Holyoke Library along with your contribution. If it's an electronic form, please use Nancy Kocsmiersky as a contact and send it to  We'll take care of the rest!

Here are just some of the companies that match gifts to HOLYOKE LIBRARY.





  • It doesn't cost you a thing and can help so many.  Thank you.

For those who wish to make a larger donation, there are still opportunities available!

Become a part of the excitement and history of the newly restored library by permanently naming an area or fixture within this incredible facility. As an incentive to join the remarkable group of supporters who have made this project possible, we have lowered the cost of sponsorship for shelving units within the children's section from $7,500 to just $1,000.
If you are in a position to donate $200 a year for five years, your name will be displayed for generations on one of the attractive wooden children's book stacks. You will also be recognized as a "Philanthropist" in perpetuity in the new lobby alongside those who put their mark on Holyoke by privately funding the library nearly 100 years ago.
