The Friends of the Library
Introducing our new display case gift to the Hopkinton community, thanks to Middlesex Bank Charitable Foundation and its creator, John Foster.
100% Volunteer Powered
We provide many opportunities for volunteers of all ages, interests and abilities to support the library.
Financial Support for the Library
We support the library's offerings and add other programs and events. Our fundraising efforts include book sales and apple crisp.
The Friends of the Library was formed to offer community members an enjoyable way to support our wonderful library. Our all-volunteer team works to hold enrichment activities, offer speakers and raise funds to enhance the library's budget. Whether you are a student or a senior citizen or somewhere in between, we would love to have you join us.
Upcoming Programs and Events
Apple Crisp Success!
We had a great time at the Friends Apple Crisp booth, and want to thank both the dedicated volunteers who made it happen, and those who dropped by to purchase! You are our heros!
Broadway Musicals: The Golden Age 1927-1964
This Zoom class is brought to you by Friends of the Hopkinton Public Library. It is a part of the Life Long Learner program funded by the Friends and is offered at no charge to our community.
With the opening of Show Boat in 1927, a new style of musical was born. Referred to as the ‘book’ musical, it would become the standard of shows on Broadway especially in the 1940’s and 1950’s with great shows by Rodgers and Hammerstein. We will discuss the development of this new musical form and see clips of the best and brightest Broadway has to offer. Take a journey through the years that made the musical one of the great forms of theater. It is truly an American invention!
