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!​
