Harris County Public Library launches digital library card program
The Harris County Public Library launched a digital library card program in September.
Harris County Public Library launched an OverDrive Instant Digital Card program in mid-September, allowing county residents to instantly sign up for a digital library card through any smartphone or computer, the HCPL announced in a Sept. 12 news release. With the digital card, residents within HCPL’s service area can borrow ebooks, audiobooks and digital magazines using only their cell phone number. Patrons must still visit an HCPL branch library to receive a full library card to access physical reading materials. A branch of the HCPL, the Parker Williams Branch Library, is located at 10851 Scarsdale Blvd., Houston, near Pearland and Friendswood. https://hcpl.overdrive.com
