Free Immunizations with the Harris County Immunization Outreach Mobile Team

The Galena Park Branch has partnered with the Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services to provide free immunizations.  The immunizations will be provided primarily to children ages 0-35 months.  Adults are also welcome to attend the event and receive any required or recommended immunizations.  As of January, 2008, the IOMT provides most vaccines to qualified children (children on CHIP, Medicaid, no insurance or under-insured) and adults (no insurance or under-insured) at no cost.

Are You Interested in a little bit of Galena Park History?

If you are a long time graduate of the Galena Park schools, you may be interested in seeing some of the year books that we have located at the circulation desk.  We have some very old Galena Park High School yearbooks and a few not so very old yearbooks.  Please visit the library and take a look at them.  Check out the new and old hair styles.  Look a pictures of what Galena Park used to look like as well as businesses that used to thrive in Galena Park. We have also acquired a new book on the history of the City of Galena Park.  We hope to see you soon!

Have you ever heard a book talk?

A new source for checking out books is to take a look at our HCPL Digital Media Catalog.  We are currently adding more library resources to this part of our catalog.  Some of the newer books and more popular items may be available for download to several compatible devices.  So what is so special about this, well, there is no late fees, and if you need to place a hold on an item, you will receive an email when the item is available.  The best part of using our Digital Media Catalog is that the library virtually never closes.  Our Digital Media Catalog can be accessed anywhere in the world by just using your Harris County Public Library Card and the internet.  Audiobooks, eBooks, and videos may be downloaded for free.  Don't forget to download the free Digital Media Software

Hurricane Preparedness: Are You Ready?

When:  Tuesday, September 22, 2009 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  Where:  The Galena Park Branch Library.  The Hurricane season is upon us, and after last year, we all know that it pays to be prepared.  Are you ready?  Are you aware and vigilant.  With this in mind, mark your calendars and come to the library to meet with representatives from the Harris County Office of Emergency Management as they will present a free program to discuss how to be better prepared should another Ike make it's way to Southeast Texas.  Interactive Hurricane Tracking Charts as well as emergency checklists and other items will be provided.
