HCPL Centennial

The year 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Harris County Public Library. Starting as a handful of library stations housed in post offices, schools, businesses, and private homes across the county, HCPL has grown to become an integral part of the Harris County community with innovative programming, second-to-none collections, and red carpet customer service.
