Farewell to Ryan

Ryan Fennell has been the Teen librarian here at the Aldine Library for the past 6 years. He created our teen program from scratch and accomplished a lot! Ryan introduced the teens to digital storytelling and other ways of creating and expressing themselves. They won a national award for one of their videos and received recognition in the Houston Public Library's Reel Teen Film Festival.  And every year, they have  created a decorated book truck for the Art Car parade.  Ryan has had a great impact on the lives of our teenagers and we will miss him very much. He won’t be far though. He’ll be working at one of our other Harris County Public Library locations, creating and serving inpicture of Ryan at work  various new ways. We wish him well!

Snapshot Day!

Recently picture of computer usersAldine Branch Library took part in the Texas Library Snapshot Day program. All over Texas, libraries gathered data, gave out survey forms, and took pictures to capture a “snapshot” of a regular day at their library. Our day was Oct. 30th and it was great! We had over 600 people walk into the library and 187 reference questions were answered. We got great comments on our survey forms like, “This place is important to me.”  Thanks for taking part in our Library Snapshot Day!
