All branches of the Houston County Public Library in Centerville, Perry and Warner Robins are currently open during our regular business hours.

A few items to note:

  • We want our community and staff to be safe, so we ask everyone to wear a mask.
  • Items can be returned and will be in quarantined before being checked in. No fines will be charged.
  • There is limited computer services per day per patron.
  • We are limiting the total number of people in each building along with a large range of other protective measures.
  • Book donations can be made in the red Friends of the Library book drops. We are not taking inside book donations at this time. Please call the library before dropping off large donations.

If you have other questions, you can call me at 478-987-3050 x5 or email me at jspaulk@houpl.org.

Georgia’s public libraries provide $732.8 million in state economic impact

Georgia’s libraries impact our community’s lives in some many ways. Thanks to a report completed by Georgia Public Library Services and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, we now have proof of how libraries provide much more than just books.

For every $1 invested in Georgia’s public libraries, the community gains $3.21 in goods and services plus indirect economic benefit.

Georgia Public Library e-Card

The Georgia Public Library Service is launching an e-card for all PINES public libraries.

The e-card provides immediate access to all digital resources offered at your local public library, such as eRead Kids, Mango Languages, Learning Express, and much more. 

As an added incentive, you can also receive information about how to register to vote using the e-card application.

Anyone in Georgia can register for a PINES e-card regardless of whether their local library is a part of the PINES network.

To apply, visit georgialibraries.org/register

Those who want to upgrade their PINES e-card to a full library PINES card to check out books and other materials can bring their e-card account number and photo ID to any PINES library.

If you have any questions, please call your local library for assistance.
