Hopkinton Public Library - October 2023 Events

By contributor,
Library sm

We have recently launched a big event series called One Book/One Hopkinton, a community-wide read that centers around Anne Tyler's book, Digging to America. It runs through November 17, and community members can participate by checking out a copy of the book (available here at the Library), attending one of our programs, and/or discussing the book's themes with family and friends. In a town that welcomes and engages with all, we hope that it sparks discussions about who we are as a community, and who we want to be as individuals. The event is sponsored by the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation.
