Summer Reading Program
Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Program!
This is the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Club. We will be exploring sea creatures and all things oceans this summer!
The Hillsboro City Library encourages you to read for 20 minutes everyday this summer. Read aloud to your younger siblings or to your parents. Read in your favorite quite spot. Reread your favorite book again. It does not matter how or where you read as long as your are having fun while you do it! So grab a book, get comfortable, and read so you can log 10 hours of reading this summer and earn some awesome prizes!
We have an amazing line up of Summer Reading performers on the calendar for you to enjoy! We will be hosting storytellers, magicians, a ventriloquist and an interactive drum circle! Watch a live aquarium animal cam or get out in nature! No matter what program you choose to do though, be sure to stop by Hillsboro City Park and check out our StoryWalk!
The Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Club runs from Thursday, June 9, 2022 to Friday, August 5, 2022! You won't want to miss out on the opportunity to participate in our events.

-Audiobooks count too! Download an audiobook from CloudLibrary and turn every car ride into a storytime.
