Your Houston Public Library card gives you access not only to over 24,000 items here in our building, but also to the collections of 35 other public libraries and 27 school libraries, all located the 11 Minnesota counties which form the SELCO (South Eastern Libraries Cooperating) region — a total of over 1,085,795 titles! Again, all free of charge.
We receive deliveries of items requested by our patrons through interlibrary loan five days per week. Here’s a photo of our regular delivery driver, Christopher, who (just like a mailman) makes it down here from Rochester despite the seasonal challenges of Midwestern weather. For the record, we are always happy to order items for our patrons, but if you are interested in exploring the online catalog, get out your library card and go to www.houston.lib.mn.us. Questions?
