contribute's picture

The Library Board of Trustees has voted to make Hopkinton Public Library permanently fine-free for overdue materials! We are thrilled that Hopkinton will join the ranks of the many libraries eliminating overdue fines that may place an undue hardship on patrons and/or create barriers for access. For a number of years, we have forgiven fines for seniors and have held monthly "fine amnesty" days. Now overdue fines will no longer be assessed on late materials for any age, that belong or are returned to us.
