Santa Visits the Hopkinton Public Library

A few weeks removed from his visit to Hopkinton at Caroling on the Common, Santa Claus made another appearance in town, this time at the library. Children's Librarian Denise Kofron, who invited Santa to join her for the annual holiday story time, read her favorite story "'Twas the Night Before Christmas". In the middle of her story, Santa appeared, and read one of his favorite stories, "The Polar Express", to the children.

After Santa's story, the kids lined up to meet Mr. Claus and tell him what they wanted for Christmas this year. Santa then gave them an early present.

In addition to hosting Santa, the library is also planning a few special children's events for January. Watch the HCAM News video below for details.

Origami Workshop at the Hopkinton Library

Karen Beaver has been making items out of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, since she was a child. And for the past few years, the Nashua New Hampshire librarian has toured around area libraries to teach patrons how they can create origami pieces.

On December 11th, Beaver presented her workshop at the Hopkinton Public Library, in which the class, who consisted of mostly origami novices, got a chance to make a few holiday ornaments.

Previously, the library has held other origami workshops, which have been geared toward kids. But this one was designed for both kids and adults alike. Beaver believes that not only is origami a fun activity for all ages, but it also gives those who create it a chance to bond together.

Following the success of this workshop, Library Director Rownak Hussain hopes to have other similar programs at the library in the future.
