The mission of the Hill Library is to grow and develop with the Strafford community to meet the people’s cultural, educational, recreational and informational needs in a welcoming setting that supports lifelong learning. The library maintains several roles: a community access point for information and knowledge, a children’s door to learning, a popular culture center and meeting place.
Summer Reading participants may continue to register at Hill Library. The reading logs below may be downloaded for use in recording books read for credit at the library.
Hill Library Reading Log
Adults may register as Summer Readers as well as children. Parents may read to young children for credit as well. Many prizes large and small are available for full reading log pages. The library also has forms for free books from Barnes & Noble. Fisher Cat baseball game tickets are available to children who have read five books. Completed certificates may be mailed to a Fisher Cat address available here at the library. They must be mailed 2 weeks prior to the selected game in order to receive tickets.
