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.

Let It Rain

Don't let the cold weather get you down? It is the best time to snuggle up with a good book. Tuck youself in and grab a mystery. Light your fireplace and read a romance novel. Gather the family around the living room and share favorite poems. The silver lining of rain and cold is a Harris County Library Card and some really great winter reads.

Stand Up and Be Counted - Census 2010

Did you know the 2010 Census starts mailing forms to all residences in March? The census counts the population of the US and is used to determine how over $400 billion dollars in federal funds are distributed. Several of our county library branches will be information and counting centers for the 2010 Census. It is a quick 10-question form, but the impact is long lasting. Just ask anyone that uses the past US Censuses for family genealogy research.
