NEW HOURS! Starting August 1, 2018

The Houston Public Library (HPL) will offer new service hours at all of its locations beginning August 1, 2018. HPL always strives to provide exceptional service to its customers, and because time is of importance to them, the Library is changing its service hours to make it more convenient for its customers to visit the library at their preferred time. The Library now has added extended hours at its regional library locations and some neighborhood library locations, the Central Library will now be open on Sundays.

Dedicated to helping create Complete Communities

We are extremely grateful to the Houston community's support for the Houston Public Library. On Tuesday, November 7, the community voted in favor of an ambitious, multiyear capital improvement plan to transform our library system across the city.

Envision a comprehensive library system with 7 Full-service Libraries, 17 TECHLinks, 23 Neighborhood Libraries, 7 HPL Express Locations and our 4 Special Collections which will provide the greatest impact on Houstonians of all ages, ethnicities and life stages no matter where you live or travel.

“Through the decades, the Houston Public Library has striven to transform with the evolving needs of our community, from bridging the gap in technology, building state-of-the-art facilities, and developing services and programs for all ages,” stated Dr. Rhea Brown Lawson, director, Houston Public Library. “This vote of confidence from our community is truly inspiring. We are excited and prepared to set the stage for advancing the library into the future and helping make an even stronger and resilient Houston."

The comprehensive neighborhood capital improvement plan includes:

  • Providing the Houston community more effective and equitable access to the Library’s services, collections, and technology in the communities where they live, work, and raise their families
  • Continuing to provide access to services and resources such as computers, technology instruction, children’s and teen programs, student resources, job search assistance, and variety of book and e-Book collections.
