Renew Materials @ Your Library!

Remember to renew the books and DVD's you check-out to avoid possible fines. You can phone 713-747-4763 to use our  automated phone renewal or you can go to our website: www.hcpl.net   For these two services, your library card barcode number and pin are required. You can also call us direct at the North Channel Library to renew materials  if you know your barcode number, but have forgotten your pin number: 281-457-1631  The only time we cannot renew  an item is if another customer is waiting to use it. Another helpful service is that you can ask for more time, even when you are at the Library checking materials out for the first time! So ask us for extra time the next time you check-out--especially if you are going on a long vacation this summer!
