Please welcome our new Adult Services Librarian, Jessi McCarthy,
on Monday, December 18!

Jessi has been the Director of the Holland Public Library for the past three years. Before that, she worked as a reference librarian in the Peabody and Salem libraries. She received her MLIS from Rutgers University. Jessi has an exceptional track record of building community relationships across all of her previous positions. We think she will do a great job of welcoming Hopkinton residents into the library, and that she will bring exciting new ideas and the ability to make them reality. We're looking forward to working with her to keep bringing you the best service possible!
