One of the many ways in which Harris County Precinct Two serves its citizens is by providing technology labs and computer literacy classes at community centers; in 2001, labs were opened at the J.D. Walker Community Center, Riley Chambers Community Center and at the Flukinger Community Center. This footage, from the opening of the computer lab at the Flukinger Community Center, features Debbie Lamb, Director of East Harris County Senior Citizens, thanking those who helped make the lab a reality and explaining the importance of computer skills. Her speech is followed by a tour of the new lab.

Covering an area larger than the state of Rhode Island, Harris County is the most populous county in Texas and the third most populous in the United States. Founded as Harrisburg County in 1836, it was renamed Harris County in 1839. While much of Harris County is covered by the city of Houston, it includes many other municipalities, including: Baytown, Bellaire, Clear Lake City, Crosby, Deer Park, Friendswood, Humble, Katy, La Porte, Missouri City, Morgan's Point, Nassau Bay, Pasadena, Seabrook, Spring Valley, Tomball, Waller, and Webster. The films in this collection come to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image courtesy of the Harris County Archives and reflect the range of activities and services that the county provides for its constituents.
