Thank for the question.

 

Surely there must be a branch

To address your first comment

To address your first comment first, the Spring Branch Memorial Library is the closest HCPL branch to our West University.

As it says above, you may return HCPL books at the Bellaire City Library located at 5111 Jessamine Bellaire TX 77401. It is not an HCPL branch, but the City of Bellaire and Library staff have graciously offered their assistance.

Additionally, as it says above, customers placing holds may now choose Bellaire as their pickup location until West University reopens.

Because interlibrary loan materials have special considerations and procedures, we need customers to return those at the Spring Branch Memorial Library.

Thank you for your comment.
