The Library of Things at the Hillsboro Public Library is a service that offers things for patrons to checkout – from Arduino kits to ukuleles to cake pans. The collection supports lifelong learning and creativity by providing the physical tools necessary to explore new areas of interest and learn new skills.
The Hillsboro Public Library has always been a place where you can come to learn anything you are curious about – now we are offering you the tools to satisfy and encourage that curiosity. You can check out over 265 unique things and more than 350 board games from this dynamic collection!

How to Use the Library of Things
Both the Hillsboro Main Library and the Hillsboro Shute Park Branch have a Library of Things collection. All items check out for one week and are both holdable and renewable. Items must be held, picked up, and returned at their respective location. A $5 cleaning fee will be applied for any Thing that is returned dirty. Replacement costs may apply if a Thing is returned broken or with missing parts.
