Mini Golf in the Library! Minigolf en la Biblioteca

Mini Golf in the Library! is a fundraiser for the Holyoke Public Library. 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 during the cocktail party) help enhance library programming and services, especially for teens and children. 

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 the 2016 photo album; 2017 photos; and the 2018 photos
