This year's Summer Reading theme is "Build a Better World." Visit the library starting June 1 to sign up for fun summer reading challenges for kids, teens, and adults!
For children: This summer's log is a map of Hopkinton and we're reading our way back to 13 Main Street from our temporary facility. Earn tickets that can be redeemed for prizes!

Upcoming Programs for Adults
Roseann Sdoia: Perfect Strangers
Wednesday, June 7, 7 pm
To be held at the Hopkinton Historical Society
Co-sponsored by the library and the Hopkinton Historical Society
As Roseann Sdoia waited to watch her friend cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013, she had no idea her life was about to change -- that in a matter of minutes she would look up from the sidewalk, burned and deaf, staring at her detached foot, screaming for help amid the smoke and blood. In the chaos of the minutes that followed, three people would enter Roseann's life and change it forever.
