Hillsboro Brookwood and Shute Park Libraries are taking a storytime break from August 18 to September 2 to prepare for storytimes in the fall.
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 rooms and conference rooms may be reserved and used with your library card without a fee. 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 filtered internet computers offer more learning experiences. Coffee and donuts are for sale in the lobby.
With plenty of parking, this 77,000 square foot building also includes rentable spaces for community organizations and events.
Hillsboro Public Library's Book-O-Mat, an automated book kiosk, is located downtown.
Stocked with bestsellers and movies for checkout, this is the first of its kind in Oregon, and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Meeting, conference, and study rooms are available by reservation.
