What do libraries do?

When most people think “library” they think books. Yes, that is true, but books can take many different shapes, such as e-books and audiobooks. But we offer more than  just books, libraries are places of information, offering people free access to a wealth of information that they often they can’t find elsewhere, whether online, in print or in person. If you are looking for DVDs or the latest best-seller, health or business information found on internet databases not available at home, or going for story times and community programming.

AI Family Challenge @ HCPL

 

Sign up
HERE!

Harris County Public Library is part of the first-ever global initiative to support families learning Artificial Intelligence together. We have partnered with Curiosity Machine to bring artificial intelligence learning to children and families who may submit projects to a global competition!

Children ages 8 to 15 and their families learn to use AI technologies and tools to solve problems in their communities around transportation, community-building, health, education, crime, safety, air and water quality, emotional well-being, and the environment. They also learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a real business.
