If you do not already have a Harris County Public Library Card, our new iKnow Card will give you instant access to online content and services.
Harris County Commissioners Court has adopted a resolution designating September 2015 Library Card Sign Up and Literacy Month, and Harris County Public Library is marking the occasion by unveiling its new iKnow Digital Access Card. Starting September 1, county residents will, for the first time, be able to apply for and receive a library card completely online and gain immediate access to a wide range of digital content including streaming movies, eBooks, online research tools, even complete digital editions of popular magazines. The iKnow Card does not replace HCPL’s full service Knowledge Card which gives you access to all of HCPL's materials and services including all digital content. The iKnow Card is meant for new patrons who want immediate access to online services.
