Michael C. Carlos Museum Family Pass


Thanks to a new partnership between the Michael C. Carlos Museum and Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS), Georgia families will soon be able to pay a free visit to one of the most revered institutions in the state.

Renowned for its collections of art from Egypt, the Near East, Greece, Rome, Africa, the Americas and Asia as well as works on paper from the Renaissance to the present, Atlanta’s Michael C. Carlos Museum is providing every public library in Georgia with a pass that is valid for up to six free admissions — a potential savings of $48 per family. Residents with valid library cards can check out the passes beginning Oct. 1 at more than 400 participating libraries across all 159 Georgia counties.


In August 2016, Houston County Public Library System will begin using collection agency services to recover long overdue library materials and outstanding fines and fees.

Please use this opportunity to return overdue library materials and clear your library account of outstanding fines and fees.

Using your library card and PIN, you may view your library account online AND pay library fines.



Due to criminal activity, the wireless network at all three branches of the Houston County Public Library System has been disabled until further notice.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

CORRECTION** Page2 of October’s newsletter mistakenly stated, under Trick or Treat times, that “Warner Robins will welcome trick-or-treaters on Tuesday, October 31 from 6 PM— 8 PM”, that should read “the City of Warner Robins will welcome trick-or-treaters on Monday, October 31 from 6-8pm.”

We apologize for any confusion.  A corrected version is now available.
