About the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation.
Hopkinton Public Library Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose initial mission was to raise private funds for the expansion and state-of-the-art renovation of Hopkinton Public Library.

With the opening of this historic project, HPLF carries on its mission of supporting the Library by funding resources, technology, educational and special projects, and long term improvements to the Library. HPLF’s fundraising efforts seek to bridge the gap between the community’s aspirations for its Library and the usual or customary funding available from municipal budgets. Working in partnership with the Library, as well as the supporting organizations of the Trustees and Friends of the Library, the Foundation encourages continued and increased support of the Hopkinton Public Library as a valuable community resource.
