HCPL branches will close on Thursday, April 2 at 5 PM and will be closed April 3 through April 5. We will reopen on Monday, April 6 for regular hours. Lone Star College - Cy-Fair Library will be open Thursday April 2 until 10 PM.
With temperatures often in the three digits these days, we invite you to cool off at any of our 25 branches. All branches have air conditioning and plenty of places to sit and relax. You might also want to peruse our collection of books, DVDs, and audios. This would also be a great time to take a free computer class or bring your child to storytime. All branches have a variety of programming this summer to help keep you cool.
Residents seeking shelter from the frigid temperatures can head to their local library. All 25 Harris County branch libraries will open at 9 am on Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9 to serve as warming centers for the public.

It is always helpful to have some starter discussion questions ready for your book club. Often you can find these at the back of your book, on a publisher's website, or on one of the reading group sites. But what do you do if none are available? The Reading Group Guides website offers some general questions that can be adapted to a wide variety of books, from biographies to mysteries to historical fiction.
Information for Persons with Disabilities: Harris County Public Library will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities who are interested in attending library programs. To make a request for yourself or someone you know, please notify the Branch Librarian two working days in advance of the program.
