P.s. Did you know that the computers at the library are not just for doing homework? The library is a place to have fun too. Just visit one of the Harris County Branch Libraries and you can use one of the public computers for your studies, searching the net, or to play games. No library card? No problem! You actually don't need a library card to get onto a computer; just ask a staff member for a one time pass or code to log onto the internet. Please be aware, that there is a maximum limit of 1 hour of computer time per session when others are waiting.
- A limited number of laptop computers are available for use.
