InterLibrary Loans or ILL's

 Is there something you have wanted to read but have not been able to find it in our HCPL catalog? The library might be able to request it for you through our Interlibrary Loan service. This service can only be used if the item is not part of our collection and it is more than six months post-publication. We will not be able to borrow music CD’s or cassettes, DVDs or VHS tapes, or software.  Also, we cannot request items from outside of the United States.  Otherwise, take a look at our ILL policy and see if we can help you find what you’ve been looking for.

Are You a Jon Hamm Fan?

 If so then get ready, the Mad Men Season 5 debuts with a two hour premiere on Sunday, March 25. If you haven't been watching this awarding winning AMC series don't despair,  the Harris County Public Library owns seasons one- four on DVD. There is plenty of time to catch up. 

Ready to Get Healthy?

Are you ready to get healthy this year?  Trying to figure out how? We have a program for you!  This Tuesday at 1 PM, the Maud Marks Library will host our next Senior Moments, a program series designed specifically for seniors and mature adults.  This month, Dr. Christopher Freytag will be joining us to discuss how you can lengthen your life through healthy living.  We'll be talking about healthy eating, exercises, and more.  Seating for this and most programs at the library is limited.  Please click here to sign up for this and other events at your local library.

Tax Forms Are Here!

Most of the IRS tax forms are available in our lobby for you to pick up.  We’re still waiting on the 1040 forms and instructions but they should be here around the end of January; in the meantime they are available on the IRS website.  Also keep in mind that the AARP will be back starting in February to assist with tax preparation.  Stay tuned to this blog for more information!
