General statement: My name is Jessica McCaffrey and I am running for a seat on the Hopkinton Public Library Board of Trustees. My husband and I live on Lumber Street and moved to Hopkinton after being drawn to its charming, small town feeling and its renowned school system.

As a lifelong supporter of library associations, I believe that libraries offer infinite resources and help the community thrive, serving as both an educational and social center. I believe my legal background and skills as an attorney will greatly serve the board with guidance on legal compliance and regulatory concerns, help in organizing and implementing strategic goals, and impact effective decision-making as a representative of the community.

I grew up locally, graduating from Marian High School, Villanova University and Suffolk University Law School. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and Spenser, our rescue puppy through Baypath Humane Society, reading, traveling and spending time outdoors.

I am proud to call Hopkinton my home and am excited about this opportunity to serve our community as a library trustee.
