The Library Doesn't Close for Thanksgiving!

O.K. maybe no librarian will be at the library this coming weekend, Nov. 25- Nov. 28.  Yes, perhaps the front doors at Maud Marks library will remain locked... but, that doesn't mean we're closed.  Harris County Public Libraries are ALWAYS open online here at www.hcpl.net.  You can find books, place holds, check your account, and pay fines using our catalog
