HOMEWORK RESCUE

Have you ever gotten home without your school password to get on the databases at school for your homework? This happened to one of the students I know. HCPL came to the rescue because she was able to log on with her library card to use the World Book Student edition from our website www.hcpl.net. That's what I call "homework rescue!"

Do you need some help finding law resources? Our database link for Law and Government will point you to Texas Law Help , your one stop, online resource for free and low-cost civil legal assistance for those who cannot afford legal help.  Learn about your rights, self-help resources, and legal aid.

END OF AN ERA

After 63 years in business, The Bayshore Sun published its final edition October 6, 2010. The hometown newspaper has been important in keeping La Porte informed as well as providing a resource of local history. The La Porte Community Library Friends group has funded the conversion of the print version to microfilm for many years. Many La Portians enjoy looking up the accounts of their high school football games and Sylvan Beach pageants.

Bayshore Sun you will be sorely missed. Thanks for giving us a record of our life here in La Porte for 63 years.
