Starting November 14, 2012, customers will need to scan their library cards when using the self-checkout machines at all Harris County Public Library branches. In the past, customers could use the key pad on the machine to enter their library card number. We feel that this change in policy will allow us to better safeguard our customers' privacy.
Customers who no longer have their physical library card, will be provided with a new card.
