The Houston Public Library catalog, access to your account, information about library locations, and more is now available through your mobile device. Wherever you go you can now search for books, DVDs, AudioBooks, and eBooks, and place holds or renew items - all from your phone! You can also check out our latest reading recommendations, ask one of our professional librarians a question, find out about upcoming library events or classes, or follow our blog and tweets.
We feature the latest technology to help you find the items you are looking for. No need to search by field or even enter full words. Just type the first couple of letters of words and see the search in action. Or if you see something you like in a bookstore and wonder if we have it in our collection, just scan the ISBN number with your phone and the app searches our catalog for you.
