Search for books, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs, e-resources and more in the Harris County Public Library collections. Place holds or renew items, monitor your library account, check out our latest reading lists, follow our blog and tweets, or contact us. We are here for you! To checkout books or view your account, you will need to get an account from your local library serviced by this application. 3rd Party apps may require authenticated access. If your library card does not work for the app, please see your local librarian for instructions on accessing 3rd party apps facilitated by this application. Please note, if you try to check out an eBook/eMaterials, you will have to login again into a web form. This is the case for all libraries, as OverDrive does not support single sign on. Please also note that this application occasionally has to launch an embedded browser to display content. For example, Facebook, YouTube videos and Event details. If you checkout an eBook and try to download it, you will be prompted for an app that supports .acsm files - OverDrive is the standard application to choose. It will open and read the ebooks - however, you must have an Adobe ID. This is standard across the library industry.
