The Houston County Public Library System became a PINES-participating library system in 1999.

The Public Information Network for Electronic Services (PINES) is Georgia’s “borderless library” network that allows PINES card holders equal access to books and other materials in 300 library branches and affiliated service locations throughout the state.

The PINES network effectively turns the whole state of Georgia into one huge library. You have access to more than 10.6 million items that can be checked out from and returned to any participating library free of charge.
