A new source for checking out books is to take a look at our HCPL Digital Media Catalog . We are currently adding more library resources to this part of our catalog. Some of the newer books and more popular items may be available for download to several compatible devices . So what is so special about this, well, there is no late fees, and if you need to place a hold on an item, you will receive an email when the item is available. The best part of using our Digital Media Catalog is that the library virtually never closes. Our Digital Media Catalog can be accessed anywhere in the world by just using your Harris County Public Library Card and the internet. Audiobooks, eBooks, and videos may be downloaded for free. Don't forget to download the free Digital Media Software, (located at the bottom of the lower left bottom of the Digital Media Catalog Page). It is new and exciting to use. If you need help, come on over to the branch or give us a call. We will be glad to help you and show you how it works. Check it out. I think you will like it.
