Opened in 2007 and expanded in 2013, the Brookwood Library houses most of the Hillsboro collections. Adult fiction and nonfiction books are on the second floor, along with plenty of comfortable seating, a quiet reading room, internet computers, and an art gallery. Study and conference rooms may be reserved and used without a fee. When rooms are not reserved, use is on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t miss the Collaboratory – a space to explore the possibility of making and creating.
Books for children are on the first floor, along with new and popular books, movies, music, large print books, magazines, world language materials and the Library of Things. Interactive literacy toys, play spaces, and internet computers offer more learning experiences. The Coffee Court is currently closed due to Covid-19.
With plenty of parking, this 77,000 square foot building also includes rentable spaces for community organizations and events.
The Library offers free notary services by appointment in English and Spanish at both locations.
