Bear Creek & Galena Park Set to Reopen

We are excited to announce that the Galena Park and Katherine Tyra branch libraries will reopen this month. Galena Park opens its doors Monday, April 23 after repairs to its roof and air conditioning system. The Katherine Tyra Branch Library at Bear Creek will welcome customers for the first time since Hurricane Harvey forced it to shutter on Monday, April 30.

Work is progressing at the Kingwood and Barbara Bush branch libraries, though we do not yet have reliable estimates for their return to service.
