Closing Day, Opening Day and Important HOLDS Information!

The Kingwood Branch Library will close at its current location at 5 PM on March 13. We will reopen at the new location, 4400 Bens View Lane, on April 19th at 10 AM. Join us in celebrating our Grand Opening starting with an official opening and continuing until 9 PM. Watch this site for more information regarding this big event in our library life!

Meanwhile, for those of you who will have items to return, holds to pick up, homework to complete, Atascocita and Octavia Fields in Humble will graciously welcome all our customers. They are great branches and this will give you a chance to visit them and see the different libraries in our neighborhoods.
Items that come in to fill a hold for you after we close – will be available for pick up at the Atascocita Branch.  While the computer system initially states that these items expire on April 19, they are under the same 10 day hold policy as other requests.   Note that any items expiring on April 19 will not make their way back to Kingwood on that opening day and will then expire.  Please check your accounts online or call the Atascocita Branch Library, 281-812-2162, if you have any questions.
Items checked out – can be returned to the Kingwood Branch Library book return and any other Harris County Library. At some point we will open the book return at the new building and items can be returned there – we’ll alert you to that fact.
Interlibrary Loans – please ask a staff member as these are special loans from other library systems and require special handling.  Interlibrary loans checked out from the Kingwood Branch prior to our closing must return the items through the book drop at the old library or the book drop at the new library.  Any Interlibrary Loans checked out from the Atascocita Library will need to be returned to the Atascocita Library.
Call us at 281-360-6804 or email kw@hcpl.net if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing everyone on April 19th to show off the new library!
