After Harvey: Frequently Asked Questions

HCPL Harvey FAQs

I could not return my library materials because I could not reach the library due to high water. Am I still responsible for the late fees? 

If you return your books by September 15, you will not accrue late fees.

UPDATE: Most HCPL Branches Resume Normal Business Hours & Programming, Monday, Sept. 11.

DUE TO FLOOD DAMAGE, KINGWOOD BRANCH LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The Kingwood  Branch Library took on about four feet of water during the storm. We will be closed for the foreseeable future. Please do not return your library books to the Kingwood Brandh Library. They are much safer at your homes. No late fees will be assessed for the books. At this time Harris County Public Library System is assessing all branches and will issue updates on where you can return library books.

Also, stop by the Kingwood Library and stock up on some books! Inclement weather can be a good time to catch up on some reading. Here are some book recommendations from Penguin India blog.
