    Take me to Houston Public Library's LEARNING LINK

    Through the Learning Link, HISD students will have FREE, 24/7 access to HPL’s vast assortment of books and resources at any library location, and at school and home through the HUB, HISD’s online teaching and learning platform. All HISD students are automatically enrolled in this program and can use their student ID to access library resources and services. This account does not collect any overdue fines or fees. However, students are responsible for fees on lost books. Some of the resources students have access to include:

    • More than one million books, e‐books, magazines, and research materials
    • Dozens of online resources for subject‐based projects
    • Free Wi‐Fi and computer access at all 43 HPL locations

     Students can access age‐appropriate, HISD approved, online resources through the HUB by using the instructions below.

      their district log in and password can check with their teacher.)
