Fran Scott is the winner of a $50 gift certificate from Amazon. She successfully completed ReaderNation, and her name was chosen from all the participants at West University Library. Ms. Scott is a part time Reference Librarian at the Missouri City Library of Fort Bend County. She obtained her MLS from the University of Denver, and worked in cataloging for the University of Houston for about 5 years, before going on to pursue a career outside of libraries. She returned to libraries two years ago. Her manager at Missouri City Library encouraged her to take part in all the summer reading programs that were being offered in Houston. Although she had never visited West University Library prior to winning her gift card, she obtained a library card during her first visit and promised to come back.
Ms. Scott is an avid reader and enjoys history books and historical fiction, among other genres. She was very excited to win the Amazon gift card, and is thinking of purchasing "Houston's Silent Garden: Glenwood Cemetery, 1871-2009 ", by Suzanne Turner, and also "Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World", by Lisa Bloom. She plans on participating in our Summer Reading Program next year.
