West U. Branch Is Back!

West University Branch Library reopened Monday, so stop by, say hello, browse the stacks, use one of our new Windows 10 computers or just sit and read a magazine!

We thank all of our wonderful West U. customers for their understanding and patience. We thank the City of West University Place for its support, and we thank the City of Bellaire Library for its generous assistance during West U's renovations.

The library closed in November 2016 when the West University Place City Council approved funding for necessary renovations.  The upgrades bring the library into full compliance with new ADA and safety requirements.

UPDATE: West University Branch Renovations

The holidays and severe weather across the country have delayed construction materials needed to complete safety and ADA compliance renovations at West University Branch Library. The City of West University Place is still optimistic that the library will reopen this spring.

Until then, you can continue to return HCPL materials and pick up holds at Bellaire City Library, or any other HCPL location.

Jacinto City Branch Library Reopening Ceremony: March 21, 2012

Jacinto City Branch Library exteriorIn truth, the library is already open for business, but we want everyone to come see our new look, so Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Jack Morman and Harris County Public Library invite you to celebrate the official reopening of Jacinto City Branch Library on March 21, 2012 at 10:30 AM.

The library, which is a cooperative undertaking of Harris County and the Jacinto City municipal government, has undergone extensive remodeling including new carpeting, paint and furnishings, as well as the addition of a new much-needed public meeting room. The renovations and expansion, funded with a federal grant, are the first since the library moved to the building in 1992.

Update: Jacinto City Branch Renovations

Jacinto City Branch-Computer Lab foundation constructionThe renovations to the Jacinto City Branch Library are moving along nicely. While last weekend’s rain was much needed, it slowed exterior work slightly, but we are happy to report that the foundation for the branch’s new, grant-funded meeting room has been poured and framing of the structure is well underway. Work on the interior of the existing structure is in progress and painting is almost complete.
