Question: When will the libraries reopen to visitors indoors?

Answer: It is unknown when all libraries will reopen.

According to Texas Health and Human Services, libraries may be reopened and operate at 75% occupancy; however, the Houston Public Library (HPL) system remains closed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The library system began a phased reopening on June 1, offering curbside pick-up through our HPL TO GO service.

Additionally, HPL continues to offer public wifi outside of all its libraries.
