The Hopkinton Town Library serves the villages of Contoocook, West Hopkinton and Hopkinton with a population of approximately 5,500. After a community wide planning and resource development effort, a new 10,000 square foot facility was built on the former Houston Farm property in 1998. Our new space features meeting rooms, reading porches, public computers, a café and quiet study rooms. Extensive renovations, including energy efficiency measures, were completed after a lightning strike in 2018. The mission of the Hopkinton Town Library is to provide community members of all ages resources that support their educational, practical and recreational interests through a wide range of traditional and online resources. The library serves as a commons that provides a meeting place and resource center for the community with activities and facilities for all age groups.
