HOPKINTON READS! IS BACK!
What is the Hopkinton READS! Program?
Hopkinton READS! is a program designed to bring members of our community together to read and discuss the same book at the same time. As has happened here since 2002, a committee of community residents and the Library Director creates a ballot of book titles. Titles that appear on the ballot must meet certain criteria, such as: local interest, timeliness of topics, broad community appeal, topics which lend themselves to associated programming, etc. In May and June, the community is given the opportunity to cast their vote on the book of their choice. Ballots are available in the Hopkinton Town Library and on the library website. When all votes are counted and the title chosen, the committee proceeds with the planning of programs for October, and November. All programs are free and open to the public. By the beginning of September, copies of the title chosen are available for purchase at the library at a reduced cost. There are also copies of the book available for borrowing at the Library. The committee encourages input and participation of community members during the title selection process as well as during associated programming. Happy Reading!
