Fundraising for the Library received yet another exciting boost from the Friends of the Hopkinton Public Library prior to the Library funding vote at the May 5 Town Meeting and the May 19 Town Election. The Friends have pledged to give $15,000 over the next three years to renovate and expand the Library, in addition to their $5,000 gift and naming of the Staff Room. With this generous pledge, the Friends have donated $20,000 to the renovation and expansion project. Along with recent 1000 Homes for Hopkinton Library pledges, Hopkinton Public Library Foundation has raised $475,000 in total for the new Library.

In recognition of their $15,000 pledge, the Café and Lounge area in the new Library will be named for the Friends.
