I love to post pictures with my blogs. I should have taken a picture of the inside of my purse this morning. After visiting the library yesterday with my granddaughter, it was full of pamphlets, book markers and information on our NEW library services.
If you have not gone to the Hillsboro Public Library on Brookwood, you need to make plans to do so very soon. (Go down Butler west until you hit Brookwood, turn right.) The move our city made to this new location was just perfect. The space is huge!!!! You can buy a cup of coffee or a snack, buy used books, cruise the stacks or get information on just about anything. If they don't have what you need out with pamphlets, ask the librarian to help you. I have used this service over the years to find out about companies my children have applied to for jobs and others that were seeking property when I sold real estate. The services they offer are just astounding.
While I was visiting them yesterday I found (and put in my purse):

Hillsboro Public Libraries News Letter
Many information publications were in Spanish and the library has an extensive collection of books in different languages, allowing bilingual citizens to pick up books in their native language. Add lots of computers for the public's use, willing volunteer to assist you and you have a wonderful place to go. I have always loved the library. My granddaughter and I checked out her stack of magazines with the self-service machine and were out of there in a flash.
Have a great day. b
