Black History Month Read-In

Come by the Main Library this month and participate in our Black History Month Read-In. It's easy. 1) Select a book from our display in the Youth or Adult and Teen Services areas of the library. 2) Read a bit of the book while in the library. 3) Stop by a service desk to get a post-it note. 4) Write the title of the book -- and a little blurb about it, if you'd like -- and 5) Place the post-it note on the large black piece of paper on the nearby wall.

Learn to meditate this March
Thanks to a generous grant from the State Library, we're able to offer a series of health and wellness classes this winter. This series is geared toward those new to meditation. The classes are free, but registration is required. 
We've been at the Main Library in Hillsborough for 10 years!

10 Years at the Main Library 

January 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of our location at the Main Library in downtown Hillsborough. We plan to celebrate the entire year and hope you’ll join in the fun. Go ahead and mark your calendars now for a community-wide celebration the afternoon of Sunday, April 19.
We’ve chosen this date as it’s the kick-off to National Library Week 2020 with the theme “Find Your Place at the Library” and the first day of our annual Read Down Your Fines program. There will be cake, party favors and free fun activities. More details coming soon.
