In 1895 the Hopkinton Public Libary was built with contributions from the 2,984 residents of our wonderful town. In 1967, when the town's population almost doubled to 5,569, the Library Trustees purchased the adjacent Episcopal Churc and connected the two buildings together to meet the demands of its growing community.

Today, Hopkinton's library -- only 5.015 square feet -- is among the smallest in the state, despite a population that now exceeds 15,000 residents. To meet the needs of our growing population, the Trustees have been exploring cost-efficient ways to expand.
