The Hopkinton Public Library’s Board of Trustees is a five-member elected board responsible for overseeing the library for the benefit of the community. Working closely with the library director, members are responsible for establishing library policies and plans, determining the final budget and conducting public relations. The board meets on the third Thursday, from September through June.
Meetings are held at 7 p .m. in Town Hall. Check the first-floor bulletin board or Meeting Calendar for the location and agenda.
