Pick Up HCPL Items at the Texas Medical Center Library

tmc libraryIt’s not always easy navigating the area around the Texas Medical Center, so HCPL and the TMC Library hope to reduce daily stress for those who work or seek treatment in the Medical Center with the availability of public library items for pick-up and browsing in the TMC Library.

Starting January 3, 2012, Harris County Public Library materials will be available for convenient pickup at the TMC Library location (1133 John Freeman Boulevard).  Simply select the materials you want in the library’s catalog at www.hcpl.net, place a request using your library card, select TMC as the pickup location, and the items will be delivered to the TMC Library.  Once your items arrive, you will receive a notification by e-mail or phone and have one week to pick them up.  If you would just like to browse, the library will have a small collection of books for adults, children and teens available on site.  If you don’t currently have a HCPL library card, you can apply for one online or at the HAM-TMC Library.

Please note that parking is not free at this location.  More information is available through the TMC website.
