This summer, teens are reading in support of HomePlate, and for every hour they read, the City of Hillsboro will donate a dollar. Teens who participate in this program voted for HomePlate to benefit from their reading activities.
As of July 31, 2019 they have raised about $1,290.
As part of the library’s engagement with our community, Aryn, one of the librarians active in the teen program, comes to our Hillsboro drop-in on Thursday nights one night a month. She plans to expand her volunteering to two nights. Aryn brings craft supplies and chats with HomePlate youth, letting them know about resources available in our community and building trust.
Sign up for the reading program between now and August 14.
