Change in Library Hours; Apply for Mayor's Proud Partner Awards
Houston Public Library Service Hours are Changing!
The Houston Public Library (HPL) will implement new service hours at most library locations effective Monday, August 8, 2011.
The most notable change for library customers is the reinstatement of Saturday hours at 16 neighborhood libraries. The change in hours comes after careful review of usage patterns, and from responding to customer requests for Saturday access to their neighborhood libraries.
Highlights of the new schedule:
- Library service will be provided every weekday (Monday-Friday) at 14 neighborhood libraries for after school access.
- Extended hours library service (Monday-Saturday) has been added at the Heights Neighborhood Library. Extended hours will now be provided at 7 library locations; this includes all Regional Libraries, Kendall Neighborhood Library, McGovern-Stella Link Neighborhood Library and Heights Neighborhood Library.
- Additional Saturday access is being provided at 15 neighborhood libraries (Tuesday- Saturday)
You can obtain a printable Location Guide, which provides information for each HPL location.
