Heritage Quilt Raising Funds for Library Expansion

In July of 2011, Hopkinton was awarded a library construction grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Initially waitlisted near the bottom of the list, Hopkinton moved up to the #5 spot in October of 2012. Hopkinton's grant will cover $4.5 million out of the total estimated cost of $10.2 million needed for the library expansion project. The town is responsible for the remainder.

Watch the HCAM News video to learn how the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation (HPLF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in September 2011 to raise private funds for the restoration, expansion and state-of-the-art renovation of the Hopkinton Public Library, is partnering with the Marathon Quilters to create the Heritage Quilt Project, a fundraiser and an opportunity for residents to be involved in a community project.

"Basically, it is going to be a quilt that represents a book shelf," said Lindsay McDermott, an HPLF member.

A sample of what the quilt will look like is currently on display over the fireplace in the libary and the Marathon Quilters are already at work on the actual Heritage Quilt, with the first official spine, donated by Susan Marshall in memory of Paul Annunziata, finished in December.

If you are interested in supporting the library expansion project and would like to purchase a spine for the Heritage Quilt Project, stop by the library for more details or visit the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation website.
