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.

Houston Public Library. Linking YOU to the world.

    this thing won't even work. I tried to look up books but its either too slow or it won't show me results. I tried to place hold books but it wont let me. and I tried to renew my books but it won't work! wat kind of idiot makes an app that won't even work?

    Absolutely love this app: catalog search, due dates, holds, renewals, library locator and hours are all great. I only wish it didn't require repeated log-ins per use, and that it had the ability to scan a barcode to search the catalog for a book.

    I love this app and it does everything it says it will. My only complaint is not knowing the availability of popular books that you request on hold. If you added that it would be great!

    This app is truly a life saver. Everything it says it allows you to do trust me it does. No webpages. Fast response. Renew books. Hold books. Search catalogs. E books. Up to date event calendar. I'm an avid reader and so are my children so with this app we have less time we waist in the library and more time reading.
