Saturday, January 24 is WMRLS Night at the MassMutual Center!

Dear WMRLS Member Libraries:

The Springfield Falcons Hockey Team is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit the WMRLS bookmobile service. It will be their home game at 7 p.m. on Saturday, January 24, at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, against the Providence Bruins. If your library is interested in helping promote this event to your staff and users, please read further to see how you can help…

The Falcons have provided WMRLS with flyers and tickets for the game. Would your library be interested in selling tickets? We’d ask you to post the flyer at your library and request the number of tickets you would like to sell to your staff, trustees, friends, and users. They’re for a discounted price of $10 per ticket, and WMRLS will receive $3 per ticket sold, which will be used to purchase materials for the bookmobile. Just fill out the online form at our page for this fundraiser, at and we’ll send the requested number of tickets to your library ASAP. Depending on your timing, the tickets could be used as last-minute Stocking Stuffers, or for a family outing.

An added benefit is that members of the public who donate a new or lightly used hardcover children’s book at the game will receive a coupon that they can use to purchase a ticket for another game, on either February 20 or 21, and get a second ticket for free. We hope some of the donated books will be able to be added to our bookmobile collection.

So, if you’re willing and able to help promote this fundraiser and sell some tickets, you’ll be benefiting WMRLS and helping introduce area hockey fans to the Falcons.

Thank you, and we at WMRLS wish all of you a Happy Holiday Season!
