Ariel Hess is the new Weekend Librarian at the Doherty Library. She works at other libraries in Houston and her interests are many and various. She enjoys gardening, sewing, gaming, and cooking. She also enjoys blogging, so maybe she can help with any production work for the World Wide Web you have in mind.
Ms. Hess enjoys working as a librarian because, in general, she likes helping people and teaching someone something new. She “loves the feeling of a person leaving the library with new information and the look on their faces when they have their ‘eureka’ moment.”
Ariel Hess’ favorite items are:
Books, Cats, Candy Corn (Only on Halloween), Whoppers, Hot Cheetos, Spaghetti, Organization.
Authors: John Green, Marie Lu, Jenny Han.
Books: Young Adult-Tween Books.
Activities: Going to the bookstore, shopping, going to the park, museums, exploring new things, facing my fears.
We welcome Ariel to the Doherty Library and thank her for adding new talent to our list of skills.

We are allowing students to reserve our technology room in the basement. It comes equipped with a computer connected to a projector and speakers. We hope this will help students practice their group presentations in a more academic environment. Hours will be limited and will begin solely on a trial basis for the Fall 2017 Semester. Read the policies before proceeding.
Let the library come to you beginning on October 22nd!
