Welcome To Hill Public Library
Over 125 years ago the Hill Public Library was opened for the residents in the old village with 105 volumes in circulation. Today we have over 12,500 volumes with access to thousands more via interlibrary loans and over 50,000 more via eBooks and audiobooks. Our librarian orders books that will interest a wide variety of readers, from the latest adult best seller to the imaginative picture book. Books and magazines can be ordered from other libraries or downloaded to your device. Weekly programs benefit those looking to make friends at Dewey’s Cafe, discuss the latest novel at the Book Club, or hear a story and make a craft at the Children’s Hour. Periodic special events are added as they become available. So, every age group in Hill can find something to benefit them and although many years have passed, the library continues to provide quality material, services and programs to its patrons.

Hill Public Library Featuring Local Artists
Artist Joanna Peel:
Although I was born in Colorado, my family moved to Vermont when I was 4. Currently I live with my son in Grafton, NH. As far back as I can remember I been drawing. When I was a child I drew caricatures, but when I reached my adolescent years I started to paint, flowers mostly. In college I took as many painting classes as possible; that’s where I developed my love of watercolors. I had always painted in acrylics before.
Today I mainly paint in watercolor because I love the process: soaking and stretching the paper, leaving light instead of painting in the white as with acrylics. The result of watercolor is a dream scene effect/impressionistic rather than the perfectness one can achieve with acrylic or oil.
Please stop in to the library to see my work in person to fully appreciate its effect.

Friends Of Hill Public Library
The Friends of the Hill Public Library, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1993; exactly 100 years after the library was founded. The purpose of the “Friends” is to focus attention on the library, to increase and improve the facilities and services of the library, and to stimulate use of the library’s resources. Through the years, the group has provided books, programming, and other materials not supported by the library’s budget.
