Friends Cocktail Gala
On Saturday, September 20 at 6:00 PM, the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library will host a special gala evening to raise funds for a variety of library activities and equipment needs. The event will be held in the magnificently restored original main circulation area of the building, which has been called one of Holyoke’s architectural "grand jewels.” 

Each year the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library host a special event to raise funds for a series of guest speaker programs, readings by area authors, children’s programs and special equipment needs not covered within the library budget 

Tickets for the September 20 event can be purchased at the library in advance or they may be obtained at the door on the evening of the event. A special menu of hors dóeuvres will be provided by The Delaney House and a cash bar will be open throughout the evening. Background music for the gala will be drawn from a specially selected playlist of old favorites and popular contemporary selections.
