Remembering Old High School Friends

La Porte High School Annuals

La Porte High School Annuals from past years are available for viewing in the library. The oldest annual is from 1939, the next one covers 1947, and the availability of various years increases as we near the current year. Some copies have “autographs” of the students with their picture, so a photocopy of one of these pages could be a treasured memento of a loved one. Ask at the Information Desk for these annuals if you would like to try to find an old friend, see photographs of your parents as teenagers, or just to discover what La Porte High School was like years ago.

Where do you find public postings?

One of the perhaps unknown services the La Porte Community Library offers is as a site for public display of industry permit applications and environmental impact documents. The various surrounding plants are diligent in providing this information to the public. If you wish to read any of this important literature, stop by the information desk and a librarian will guide you to it.

Texas, Our Texas!

Texana Shelves at La Porte Community Library

Each Harris County Library branch has its unique aspects. One of La Porte's is a Texana collection. Our books about Texas travel and Texas history are located on Row 3A in the shelves that are straight ahead as you enter the library. A special interest in Texas history is in our roots and our location: the San Jacinto Battleground site where Texas won independence is in La Porte. If you have an interest in Texas history, travel or other topics relating to Texas, take a look at our Texana shelves!
