Aldine Branch Teens Recognized at MFAH

Teens With AwardsAs you know, the teens at the Aldine Branch library won the People's Choice Award in this year's HPL Reel Teen Film Festival. For winning, their book trailer was screened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston last week for all to see. The teens also took questions from the audience.
