What's Happening

Letters to Santa,
Letters from Santa
Write a letter to Santa and drop it off at the Hillsboro City Library by November 30 to receive a personal reply from Old Saint Nick himself!

Our special mail box sends the letters straight to Santa at the North Pole where he personally crafts a response to each child and sends it back via the U.S. Postal Service (No Postage Necessary). Santa, of course, knows where each child lives, but the post office needs home addresses to deliver the letters! So be sure to include your address on your letter!

Envelopes and letter paper can be found at the library next to Santa's Mail Box in the Children's Department. 
Stop by our StoryWalk in Hillsboro City Park to read "The Scarecrow" by Beth Ferry. 

When you finish, swing by the library and grab an adorable take & make crow craft! 

Story and craft available all month long!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. It is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
