Don't Stop Reading This Summer!

At this point of the summer, many of our patrons have already completed our summer reading program and gotten all their prizes from it. However, just because you have finished does not mean you should stop reading for the summer! The Harris County Public Library has a weekly challenge of books throughout the summer to help keep you motivated. This can help you try books and genres you wouldn’t normally read for a great experience. Look at the list below to see what the upcoming challenges are and come into the library to find something new to read!

  • July 15-21: It's Not Rocket Science- DIY/Maker Books
  • July 22-28: No One Can Hear You Scream- Horror Books
  • July 29-August 4: Lune-Y Reads- Humour

There's a database for that....

Where can you go to find information for your school projects and reports? Where is a one-stop shop to find authoritative, credible and current information?  Where are you likely to find information that you can trust? Where can you find information easily, quickly and even gives you the citation format of your choosing already formatted for you in a variety of citation formats?  The answer is Texshare, that’s where. The Harris County library has access to TexShare Databases, which are e-resources licensed for the exclusive use of Texas libraries and our customers. Start with Harris County Library Databases for homework help, health or business information, academic journals, popular magazines, genealogy, or job and career development.
