Halloween is coming!

Are you ready for Halloween? We sure are! To show our Halloween Spirit, we have put up some spooky creatures on display for your ghoulish pleasure.

The mummy head by the YA horror books can't keep his eyes off of you!

Mummy head

Mr. Skeleton can lend you a bony hand at the Book Return:


Our eight-legged furry friends are curious to see what good books you are checking out:


And this deranged kitty is hanging out in a high place so he can keep an eye on all of you!


Haunted House Story Time

Please join us at Fairbanks Branch Library for a Haunted House Story Time on Saturday, October 30, at 2:00pm in the library meeting room.  We will share stories, a craft, and refreshments to spice up your afternoon.  So Save the Date! and we look forward to seeing you then.

What's New?

Home page
Did you know there’s a quick and easy way to find out what new books, movies, etc., the Harris County libraries have gotten lately? Just click the “New Titles” link on our home page, and you can select the categories that you’re interested in -- adult fiction or nonfiction, juvenile fiction or nonfiction, CDs, DVDs, and many more. The resulting list will give you links to the catalog records of all items in that category that have been cataloged in the past 30 days.

Missing Anything?

Come on in and claim your lost item or give us a call at 713-466-4438.

Help stop book abuse!

A customer recently returned this dog-chewed copy of Cujo by Stephen King:


The irony of the situation prompted a staff member to create the following display:

Book Abuse Display

The two damaged books on display are (believe it or not) examples of the not-so-yucky books that we have returned to us on a regular basis. Moldy books, muddy books, sopping wet books; you name it, we've got it.

We love our books and would like to share them with as many people as possible. So please, take care of your library books and help stop book abuse.
