Jeanette Jett, center, worked for the Harris County Library for 20 years (the last 13 at Stratford) before retiring at the end of last year. She said that she noticed the dust flying around and feels that it should because she had not made any changes over the past couple of years. Katherine Parker is the new Circulation Assistant Librarian. Her organizational skills are serving the community with research, book shelving, and clerical duties. A native of Highlands, she joined the team September 24, 2007. Katherine is a great help to find anything in the library. “Up here I am organized but don’t ask my husband.”
