New Titles

Did you know that Harris County Public Library is constantly adding new titles to its collection?  DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, YA, Juvenile Nonfiction - you name it.

Near the beginning of each month, a New Titles report is run, which lists all of the titles that have been added to the collection in the past 30 days by category, as well as the Most Requested and Most Circulated Titles of the past month, including the most requested titles we have On Order.  These lists provide handy, one-click shortcuts to each title's record in our catalog, so that you may request it on the spot using your Library Card Number and PIN, even (as is the case for On Order items) before some of the titles are even in circulation.

Many of our new arrivals have long waitlists.  Consider this service a sort of express pass to the front of the line.  To get to the New Titles report page, first head to our website,  From there, hover over the Books & Media tab and select New Titles.  It's a great resource, and, if nothing else, it puts a sort of timestamp on our collection's evolutionary process and, if you follow through to the record, it shows you which new titles are most popular (in demand anyway) among HCPL patrons.
