Memorial Day & More

Hello Aldine Library friends. Just a quick reminder for parents- and all library users- that we will be no Pajama Storytime on Monday, May 25th as we will be CLOSED  for Memorial Day.

Además, no habrá clases de inglés el martes 26 de mayo.

And the winner is. . .


In celebration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month, patrons at the Aldine Library chose from among a display of 10 different dishes from various regions of Asia and voted on their favorite during the first week of May. The dish with the most votes is. . . (drumroll). . . .the shrimp curry plate from Myanmar (Burma)! Now, on Wednesday May 20th at 5 PM we are offering a sample of this delicious food for your enjoyment. See you then!
