Abstract: Let $ X_0^6(1)/W_6$ be the Atkin-Lehner quotient of the Shimura curve $ X_0^6(1)$ associated to a maximal order in an indefinite quaternion algebra of discriminant $ 6$ over $ \mathbb{Q}$. By realizing modular forms on $ X_0^6(1)/W_6$ in two ways, one in terms of hypergeometric functions and the other in terms of Borcherds forms, and using Schofer's formula for values of Borcherds forms at CM-points, we obtain special values of certain hypergeometric functions in terms of periods of elliptic curves over $ \overline {\mathbb{Q}}$ with complex multiplication.
