HOMEWORK RESCUE

Have you ever gotten home without your school password to get on the databases at school for your homework? This happened to one of the students I know. HCPL came to the rescue because she was able to log on with her library card to use the World Book Student edition from our website www.hcpl.net. That's what I call "homework rescue!"

TEXAS LAW HELP

Do you need some help finding law resources? Our database link for Law and Government will point you to Texas Law Help , your one stop, online resource for free and low-cost civil legal assistance for those who cannot afford legal help.  Learn about your rights, self-help resources, and legal aid.
