Announcements: New Young Adult Librarian
The Hopkinton Public Library is pleased to announce the hiring of Jak Miller as Hopkinton’s next young adult librarian. A resident of Hopkinton, Jak has worked as a reference substitute for the library since July. Jak brings a strong background in library service for young adults through a master’s in library and information science from Simmons University specializing in youth services, as well as superb leadership skills gleaned from 13 years of management experience with the U.S. Army. The library is excited for Jak to join the team and looks forward to seeing the great work she will do for our young adults in Hopkinton.
