Live in Texas? Read E-Books for Free

Posted: February 7, 2020 9:00:00 AM CST

Gifted a Kindle for Christmas? Don’t want to send Amazon all your money? You should join the Houston Public Library!

Houston Public Library supplies library cards to all Texas residents free of charge. So, if you call Texas home you have access to all of Houston Public’s e-book collections. Moreover, by using the Libby app, you can send checked-out e-books directly to your Kindle. There’s an easy online application. And if that doesn’t work (sometimes the webpage has trouble verifying your residence status) you can register by email.

Live outside of Texas? You can still become a member. For non-Texans, a library card is only $40 a year. That’s a third of the price of Kindle Unlimited.

It’s really that simple, so let’s all become members of the Houston Public Library and read some free books!
