Mission Accomplished

dawn

It's a new dawn at the Aldine Library. The HCPL catalog system upgrade and migration is now complete. You can access your account online as before. It may take staff a little longer to process new library cards, etc., as we get accustomed to the system. Thank you for your patience and for bearing with us as we learn the ropes of our new software! 

 

Software Installation and Affected Library Services November 8-13

Hello Aldine Library Friends,

We are having software installation occurring throughout the Harris County Public Library system during the week of November 8th-13th.  Library services will be affected during this time. Here's what to expect that week:

1. You must have your Library Card to check out.

2. Access to all digital services will still be available with your Library Card

3. You will not have access to your account

4. Items with a due date of November 9th-15th will be due on November 16th. Please return these items after November 13th. 

 

Thank you for patience during this time of transition. If you have any questions, please contact us.
