• The Houston Independent School District and the Houston Public Library have formed a partnership to ensure every HISD student has access to HPL's vast assortment of books and resources. Students can now use their student id to check out books at any of HPL's 43 locations and access online, pre-approved, age appropriate HPL resources through the HUB.  All HISD students are automatically enrolled in this program, called the HPL Learning Link. The HPL Learning Link student account does not collect any overdue fines or fees. However, students are responsible for a $10 fee per lost or damaged book.  

    A student's HISD login and password will provide them access to age-appropriate, pre-approved, online HPL resources via the HUB. To access, students must follow the instructions below:

    • Log into the HUB.
    • Click on the "Digital Resources" tab at the top of the page.
    • Click on the HPL Learning Link logo.
    • Enter your user name and pin in the following format:

      USER NAME: First initial of last name (capitalized) + student ID number
      PIN: MMDD (date of birth)
      EXAMPLE: For Jane Smith with student id 123456 and birth date of 12/01/2001
                                      User name: S123456
                                      Pin: 1201
