The first time you visit our catalog, you will be asked to create an account. To create the account, you will need the last name the library card is in and the patron number. Please do not use the P, just the number. If you don't know your patron number, stop by the library to pick up your new library card.
We need to take your picture to be attached to your library account.
Once you are in the catalog you will be able to browse the books and make selections from home. When you place a hold on a book that is available in the library, a staff member will pull the book from the shelf and call you.
Thank you for your support of the Hillsboro Public Library. Cheryl Sale, Director
