Donate Gently Used Books

Cleaning house for the holidays?  Consider donating books, dvd's, and cd's to the Friends of the Library.  You get a gift receipt, your items get a new home and the Friends raise money to benefit your local library.  Welcomed are adult and children's items, paperbacks and hardbacks.  (Exceptions are textbooks, magazines and encyclopedias.)  For more information call the library, 713-464-1633.

Check out Books on CD

Driving trip for Thanksgiving?  Boring daily commute?  Pick up a few books on CD to enliven the miles.  Choose from best selling novels, biographies, history, even college lectures.  Browse the Audio wall or request titles online at www.hcpl.net.
