To get your FREE library card online just Google:  --- OR type in Tennessee Electronic Library. (This is a FREE service from The State of Tennessee!)

To get your card:

Click 'Middle School.' -- You can view resources, and if you want to check out books go to the ---- e-books or audiobooks link. -- click that and you will see a dropdown menu asking you to choose your Public Library: Scroll down and select: Houston County Public Library and click 'submit.'  

You will see books you may checkout, including a wide selection of 'Harry Potter' books.
