Hillsboro Public Library's Book-O-Mat, an automated book kiosk, is located downtown. Stocked with bestsellers, audiobooks, and movies for checkout, this kiosk is the first of its kind in Oregon, and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A bookdrop will also be available on the Plaza and can accept returns from all libraries in Washington County. Patrons may also have their holds sent to the Book-O-Mat for pick-up, as long as the materials are not so large that they cannot fit into the trays inside the kiosk.
A conference room may be reserved and used without a fee and a meeting room is available for rent.
