Meet Your Atascocita Staff: Beth

Welcome to the Meet the Staff series in 2015.  You've seen us around the library and probably spoken with several of us, but here are a few items you may not know about your Atascocita Library staff.  Once each month, you'll get to learn just a little bit about the people who bring great programs and library services to this area of Harris County. 

I'll be starting us off.

Name: Beth
Title: Branch Librarian (aka, branch manager)
Time working at the branch: 9 years

HCPL Top SF reads of 2014

Here are the top SF reads in Harris County Public Library for 2014.  The influence of TV and movies shows up strongly this year.  Because of that, I’m combining all of the Song of Ice and Fire books as one and giving it the top spot.  After that are the rest of the top ten.  There are a few other titles that belong in the same fictional universe, but as they are not entire series, I kept them separate.
