  • According to the library website, "Langworthy Public Library grew from conversations between Amos G. Nichols and his uncle, Joseph Langworthy in the late 1880’s when it was suggested that kindly thoughts of Mr. Langworthy would remain in the minds of villagers for generations if he made possible such an establishment. This argument was persuasive enough to have Mr. Langworthy bequeath $5,000 for the purpose. In May 1888, papers of incorporation were secured and books were purchased. The library opened on July 7, 1888 with 794 books in a reading room provided rent-free by the Odd Fellows Lodge, Main Street, Hopkinton."
  • "Desiring a building of their own, in September 1916 the Library Association bought the William N. Chipman property on Mechanic Street and set about remodeling and renovating the old Cape Cod house to accommodate a growing collection." Read more at the Langworthy Public Library Website
