Local Author Fair
The library is hoping to hold a Local Author Fair, where local published authors will have an opportunity to read from their work, answer questions about their writing process, and sell and sign copies of their work. Local authors should reach out to Nanci Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the end of February with contact information (name, phone number, email address) as well as the book’s title and ISBN. Slots will be limited and preference will be given to Hopkinton authors.
Masks covering the nose and mouth are required for those age 2 and over at all times in library. Food is not allowed in the library.
