Hopkinton Public Library Collecting Reflections on Pandemic Experiences – ​NEW UPDATE​
The library is seeking to collect information about the experiences of individuals and families in our immediate community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although a wide variety of data about the pandemic ultimately will be recorded, personal stories from people who are living through the situation today will be important to give citizens in the future a sense of what day-to-day life was like during this historic time.

Please help us by filling out a quick survey at ​http://ow.ly/3mUU50zE4vy​. All questions are optional. Responses will be recorded for posterity and made available in a local history collection we are creating about the pandemic.
