Woody, is that you?

The library woodpecker has returned. Spring is around the corner!! For several years (at least since the mid-90s), there has been a woodpecker that comes to visit the library. While he is probably not the same woodpecker, at least one bird comes each and every year. To watch video of the woodpecker, visit our video player on the Northwest Branch website.  

Come to Volunteer Orientation!

Do you want to volunteer at the library? Do you have a hard time finding your way around our library? If you answered yes to either, I recommend coming to Volunteer Orientation. Volunteer Orientation is held on Thursdays at 4 pm. The orientation gives a detailed tour of the library and explains some of the inner workings of our branch. It’s like having a free tour guide show you around a (very) local monument!

Do You Dewey?

Do you Dewey? Knowing just the basics of the Dewey Decimal System can help you navigate nonfiction with ease.
Some of the "hottest numbers" are:
Computer Books 004-006
Medical Information 610-619
Business Management 658
Interior Decorating 747
Texas History 976.4
As always, please ask your librarian for help!

We Want Your E-mail!

If you have a Harris County Public Library Card, then we want your e-mail address!  Snail mail costs money and is slow, so we would rather send information electronically.  So, if you're getting your library notifications via snail mail and you have a valid e-mail address, then contact us and let us change that.  If you plan on getting a library card, then please make sure you fill in your e-mail address on the form.  Lastly, make sure we have your current e-mail address.  If you log into your account on our website you can double check and edit your profile.  We don't want your notifications to get lost in cyberspace because cyberspace won't pick up your holds or pay your fines.
