September is National Library Card Sign-up Month

Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card.

Marc Brown

If you are an active library user, congratulations on having that most important card in your wallet! If you do not have a card, now is the time to get one. And if you have a card, but haven’t used it lately, give your library a call to make sure it is active. When you can’t get to the library there are so many items you can borrow digitally. Check out the HCPL homepage and visit the eBooks & Online Resources page for more information.

What better time to give thanks and celebrate your library card than by donating this month to the Harris County Friends of the Library. Consider donating $1 for each year you have had a library card! If you don’t have one or are just getting one, any donation is appreciated. Funds collected during the month will go toward HCFOL’s support of HCPL’s literacy programs for all ages.

You can donate three ways:

  1. Text YOURFRIEND to 44-321
  2. Go to our website
  3. Send a check made out to HCFOL to:
Harris County Public Library / HCFOL
