Now users of Harris County Public Library’s Digital Media Catalog can choose to see only the titles they want to see specified by maturity levels. In other words, if you’re a grown up and feel like you are past the Green Eggs and Ham stage in your reading life, you can filter out everything but titles cataloged for adults.


Two things to keep in mind:
• This feature only works when you are signed in to your account.
• It is strictly opt-in. If you like the search results the way they are, you don’t have to do anything at all. But changing your search settings is fast and easy. Here’s how:

1. Sign in to your OverDrive Digital Media Catalog account
