The reservation system will be integrated into your online catalog account and will allow you to book your appointment directly from the "Manage Your Account" library card portal. You will need the account access information for the library card that the holds are placed on. Please contact us before the end of April if you need your library card number.

Announcing the library's new Strategic Plan!
Last fall and winter, we asked for your feedback on library programs and services as we planned for the future. Thank you to the many people who shared their thoughts! We heard you - and we used your valuable input to create a new plan to guide the library's work for the next five years.  You can read the Hopkinton Public Library FY22-27 Strategic Plan on our website now!  This plan identifies five priority areas that we will work within to achieve our mission to "inspire exploration, discovery, and engagement as we enrich and strengthen the social network of our diverse community."

If you would like to hear more about the new Strategic Plan, Library Director Heather Backman will give a public presentation on Wednesday, April 21 at 6:30 pm on Zoom. (please register on our April website calendar). The Director is also available to speak directly to community groups about the Strategic Plan upon request.
