Take Advantage of Online Resources from the Houston Public Library

The Houston Public Library online

From borrowing books to exciting classes, the Houston Public Library offers virtual fun. It links you to the world, and there’s always something fun to discover. Here is some of what you can enjoy from Marquette at Piney Point:

Ancestry.com Texas

Dig deep into your family’s history with Ancestry.com Texas. With help from the Houston Public Library, you can easily search by name, location, and other keywords. The data collection features thousands of documents dating back generations. You’ll find land title abstracts, voter registration lists, wills & probate records, and more.


Kanopy offers free access to thousands of movies. You can kick back with classic cinema, foreign films, and inspiring documentaries. Enjoy A Street Cat Named Bob. Based on a bestselling book, it follows James Brown. He lives on the streets of London. But when he finds an injured street cat, he can’t imagine how much his life is about to change.


With OverDrive, you’ll never run out of books. It offers nearly every genre in both e-book and audiobook format. Don’t miss The Passage. Penned by Justin Cronin, it follows the story of Amy. Abandoned by her mother at a young age, she becomes a prisoner of a government experiment. When an agent tries to save her, he helps her escape but can’t stop society’s collapse. Now, Amy’s walking the streets alone with the knowledge that she’s the only one who can save the ruined world. Justin’s work is often compared to Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy. He’s an NYT bestseller and splits his time between Houston and Cape Cod.

If you’re interested in other classes offered by Houston businesses, try some online dance classes. At these local studios, you can enjoy jazz, ballet, and other styles.
