Reopening Announcement
Library staff greatly appreciate your patience and support throughout this pandemic. The governor’s recent announcement about lifting COVID restrictions was exciting and encouraging. As we gently reemerge into the “new normal,” library staff are working closely with the Town of Hopkinton and the Health Department on our transition.

Over the past year, library operations have been completely restructured to meet the needs of an entirely different set of circumstances. While we are moving forward with purpose, another restructuring will take a little time to implement. We are diligently working on plans to increase occupancy limits, hours and services and will be making changes as quickly as feasible. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.

Please note that due to the high volume of library use by children under 12, especially during the summer, face coverings will continue to be required for all library visitors, at all times, at least through summer 2021. The library trustees and director, in consultation with the Hopkinton Health Department, have made this decision to make sure that we are continuing to protect all of our patrons and staff.

Book Donations
Every Tuesday and Thursday during library hours, 1-7 p.m., until the end of June, Friends of the Library will be collecting books — hardcover, paperback and audiobooks — for an upcoming book sale. Books must be in excellent to good condition, without scribbles, tears, missing pages or margin notes. Items NOT being accepted include DVDs, CDs, textbooks, computer manuals, dictionaries or encyclopedias. Anyone with more than three boxes or grocery bags of books should call or email Beth Mezitt at 508-400-5635 or bethm@westonnurseries.com. All proceeds, as always, go to support and enhance the resources of the library.
