Interlibrary Loans

      Even though Harris County Public Library has over 2 million items available, there are a few we do not have. That’s why we offer a service called Interlibrary Loans. We can request a book or audio book for you from other libraries in the country. It could take a week or longer for the book to arrive so “patience is a virtue.” However, it is well worth the wait for a book that may no longer be available at your local library. Browse our catalog first to make sure we do not have it, and check that it is at least 6 months post publication.  Then you can request it yourself

Looking for Books to Read BEFORE They Hit the Theatre?
