Today, Houston Public Library announced more neighborhood libraries will participate in the popular “HPL TO GO” services. HPL TO GO is a contactless curbside service offering pickup of materials at 16 locations! To utilize the service, customers can schedule their pickup time and preferred location.
Customers can place their materials on hold at www.houstonlibrary.org or by calling 832-393-1313. They will then receive notification by phone or email when materials are ready. Once customer arrives at the curbside library, they can simply call and an HPL staff member will deliver the materials and place items directly in the trunk of the car or through a passenger window.
HPL is making the safety and well-being of customers and employees a priority while offering this service. To maintain social distancing and to enhance safety, HPL staff will always wear protective masks and gloves. Also, all returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being made available for additional checkout.
No car, no problem. Customers that have been notified and are walking or riding a bike can also pick up reserved materials. They can simply call their curbside library upon arrival and an employee will deliver the requested materials.
