West U. Branch Reopens March 6!

Harris County Public Library is happy to announce that West University Branch Library will reopen on March 6, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. The library closed in November 2016 when the West University Place City Council approved funding for necessary renovations.  The upgrades bring the library into full compliance with new ADA and safety requirements.

We thank you all for your understanding and your patience, the City of West University Place for its support, and the City of Bellaire Library for its generous assistance during West University Branch Library’s renovations.

UPDATE: West University Branch Renovations

The holidays and severe weather across the country have delayed construction materials needed to complete safety and ADA compliance renovations at West University Branch Library. The City of West University Place is still optimistic that the library will reopen this spring.

Until then, you can continue to return HCPL materials and pick up holds at Bellaire City Library, or any other HCPL location.

NOTICE: West University Is Closed for Improvements

West University Place City Council recently approved funding for necessary improvements to West University Branch Library that will bring it into full compliance with new ADA and safety requirements. Although no firm completion date is currently available, it is hoped the branch will reopen in January 2017.

Until then, the nearest Harris County Public Library branch is Spring Branch Memorial located at 930 Corbindale, Houston TX 77024.

Bellaire City Library has graciously lent their assistance during West University's closure. See below for details
