Librarian Gwendolyn Celebrates 15 Years of Service!

GwenJoin me in congratulating Librarian Gwendolyn on her 15 years of service to the the Harris County Public Library system! While some at Northwest Branch might have only known Gwendolyn for the four years here at our library; she has been developing her vast library knowledge at our Administration Offices for the 11 years prior to coming out the this area of town. She is an asset to our branch and the library system as a whole. You may have met her at Computer Class (Wednesdays @ 12 PM) or at one of her two book clubs (Mondays @ 2 PM). Maybe, she signed you up for Adult Summer Reading or you worked with her via our Volunteer Program. She may have been the one to give you an eBook tutorial or helped you set up an email account. Congrats to you, Librarian Gwendolyn, on your service anniversary!
