A note from the Library Director:

 

Here at the library, we 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 re-emerge 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. We are moving forward with purpose, but another restructuring will take a little time to implement. We are diligently working on plans to increase occupancy limits, hours, and services, and we will be making changes as quickly as feasible. Because many of our visitors are under the age of 12 and cannot yet be vaccinated, we must continue to take some extra safety precautions for the time being. Please watch our website and social media for updates.

 

Our goal is to be a welcoming place for our community where all can visit. Out of respect for the many children who use the library, especially during the summer, we will continue to require face coverings for all library visitors 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. We will re-evaluate this requirement in August. Thank you in advance for your help in keeping our whole community safe.

 

The knowledge that Massachusetts and Hopkinton are doing so well with vaccination gives us hope! We're looking forward to doing more, and to seeing more of you. Thank you, again, for your patience as we restructure our operations to support expanded services in the near future.
