Located at 4117 Willowbend Blvd., near Hwy 90 and Stella Link in southwest Houston, the CHS Harris County Chapter Library is staffed by Harris County Chapter volunteers. Chapter language classes, movies and meetings are held here.

Regular library hours are Wednesday from 10am - 5pm. You can call the library at 713-349-0500, or toll free 1-866-293-2443. Please leave your name and telephone number if you would like to make an appointment to visit the library at a different day/time, or if you need any other information about chapter or library activities.

    Add your family tree and family stories

    We at the Library are interested in your family tree and stories, to help others insearching for their family roots and branches. Your family history does not have to be in a fancy book or binder, but if a copy could be made for the library, we would prefer a copy on 24-pound acid-free paper if possible.

    Any donation of books, materials and artifacts are most welcome and can be made by contacting the Library at the numbers listed above. Support through your attendance at fundraising events, and monetary donations can help to replace CHS state library support.
