A New Year – New Library Service Hours
The Houston Public Library is starting off the New Year with exciting news for Library customers – more service hours at library branch locations throughout the system. The extended hours have been added to the morning and evening schedules, enabling additional access to services and programs for customers. Extended Library hours became available beginning Tuesday, January 3, 2006.
The Houston Public Library provides free access to materials and resources for education, information and entertainment. The longer hours mean you will have easier access to activities and events held at the Library, in addition to the resources provided.
Visit any of the Library’s 36 branch locations or the Central Library to use the public computers to check your email, do your homework, get free tutoring from Live Homework Help online, use the Internet for research, read online eBooks, and search through countless databases. The Library’s resources are available online from any computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by using the resources available on this Web site.
You can also check out books on all subjects, audiobooks or other written materials. The Library has a collection of more than 4.2 million items to check out or place on hold for children, teens and adults; many items are available in several languages. The Library also provides plenty of educational and fun Videos, CDs, and DVDs.
To find the new extended hours of your branch library, visit your branch page, available through the Branches section of this Web site.
