Hopkinton Public Library to Present All Things Jane Austen

Her novels have captivated readers for over 200 years and have inspired various movie adaptations. Now as part of Women's History Month in March, Jane Austen's works will be celebrated in Hopkinton. On March 6th at 7pm, the library encourages adults and young adults, fans of Austen's work and Austen novices alike, to join in a discussion about her books and her life.

As part of the Austen discussion night, from now until the event, patrons are asked to vote for their favorite Austen novel by either emailing Adult Services Librarian Susan Marshall at smarshall@hopkinton.ma.gov, or by going to the library and filling out a form at the front desk. Results will be revealed that night.

And if one Austen celebration isn't enough for you, the library is also hosting an authentic Austen-era tea party on March 15th at 7pm. All of Austen's work, including many movie adaptations of her novels, are currently available at the library.

Watch the HCAM News interview with Susan Marshall and Denise Kofron to learn more!

February in Photos

If you looked outside your window on February 9th, it wasn't hard to find Nemo as the blizzard dumped close to two feet of snow in Hopkinton. However, all that snow didn't stop February from being a busy month in town.

The month kicked off with father and son marathoners Rick and Dick Hoyt sharing their "yes you can" message at the Middle School. The team then stopped by the library to look at a scale model of the statue of them currently being erected outside Center School. And on the following day, the library was filled with young children and their parents for the first Take Your Child to the Library Day.

In High School sports news, the cheerleaders left for the Cheersport National Championship in Atlanta Georgia on the 14th, placing fifth in their division. And Girls' Basketball team tri-captains, Sarah Moses, Tess Chandler, and Dana Gogolin capped off their last home game of their high school careers on the 15th with a win over Westwood.
Congressman Joe Kennedy spoke at a Chamber of Commerce sponsored eventat Water Fresh Farm on the 19th.

Police Chief Richard Flannery announced his resignation during the public forum segment of the selectman's meeting on Tuesday night. His resignation came with little warning, although he did inform the board of his intent during an executive session prior to the start of the meeting. Flannery said that after much reflection and for personal reasons, he would not be renewing his contract. The chief will stay on through the end of the fiscal year and will officially resign on June 30, 2013.

"After 34 years, it's time for me to start a new chapter," said Flannery.
