Hopkinton Public Library Awarded $4.5 Million Construction Grant!
On August 7, 2014, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) awarded Hopkinton Public Library its $4.5 million provisional construction grant for the renovation and expansion of our Library. Funding for this grant was made possible through the capital bond bill signed by Governor Deval Patrick on August 5, 2014. The bond bill authorizes a total of $151,200,000 for the highly successful Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program. “By funding library construction, the Governor and the Legislature have demonstrated their continued commitment to providing lifelong learning for every Massachusetts resident no matter where they live, how old they are, or how much money they make,” said Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners Chair Greg Shesko.
