■The Clerk/Tax Collectors Office is open for public walk ins. Until further notice,contact with all other departments is by appointment only. In order to minimize foot traffic in Town Hall, to maximize social distancing and to reduce the risk of exposure to both residents and employees, we strongly encourage residents to continue to make use of our online tools and How To documents which can be accessed online at any time via our website hopkinton-nh.gov. You must wear a mask to enter the Town Hall. Masks are available if you do not have one.

■The Hopkinton Lions normally raises funds for the Hopkinton Food Pantry by collecting money outside the Cracker Barrel and Colonial Village Supermarket in the Fall and Spring. This year they were unable to hold our Spring Fund Raiser or our Annual Yard Sale, which is another significant source of fund raising. To compensate for the cancellation of the Spring Fund Raiser, the Lions Club is asking Hopkinton residents for help. Please add what you can to the Food Pantry Lions jars in the Cracker Barrel and Colonial Village Supermarket. You also can mail a donation to Hopkinton Lions, PO Box 185, Hopkinton, NH 03229. Checks should be made out to Hopkinton Lions Club.

■The town playground, tennis courts and skate park are open. Social distancing guidelines need to be followed. The playground will not be sanitized, so please take your own precautions when using. Please visit HopkintonRec.com for up to date information.

■The library is offering curbside pickup. Place holds by logging into the library's catalog. Please note that in June the Library switched to a new public online catalog, so it will look different. If you have questions, call 746-3663 or email us at info@hopkintontownlibrary.org. You can also call to request specific items. If we do not answer the phone, please leave a message and we will get back to you. The Library will call or email you to let you know when your materials are available.
