History of the Harris County Public Library

During the month of February, we have a unique display in our display case.  It is a series of images of the Harris County Public Libary from 1921 to 1929.  See what the bookmobiles looked like that brought books to customers all over the county.  Come and see this early history of Harris County Public Library!

Do You Want to Know a Secret?

The Galena Park Branch will once again be an early voting location.  Traditionally, not a lot of people come to our branch to cast their vote.  Based on my experience at Galena Park, voters can come and vote with relative ease.  Voters should be able to be in and out well within five minutes.  Make sure to bring your friends, family, and neighbors to vote.  I am proud to announce that we have the same Early Voting crew comming back and they would like to have your voting business.  They would like to visit with their old friends and make new friends.  I would like to invite every registered voter to come and vote at our branch.  While visiting the branch, make sure to brouse through the ever growing collection of books and DVD's that are available for checkout.  If you do not have a library card, be sure to apply for one.  That too also takes just only a few minutes and it is FREE!!
