Sushi Anyone?

Sushi is a Japanese dish of cold cooked rice shaped in small cakes and topped or wrapped with other ingredients such as pieces of raw fish.

In celebration of the 2016 Gulf Coast Reads book selection ("The Train to Crystal City" by Jan Jarboe Russell), the Aldine Library will feature a sushi program on Tuesday, October 18th at 2 PM.

Come learn about how sushi is prepared and enjoy some sushi samples!

AISD at Aldine Library


On Saturday, September 24th, the Aldine Independent School District's Curriculum & Instruction Department was at the Aldine Library from 10:30 AM-11:30 PM. Why? To read, facilitate, and monitor a special Literacy and Art program! Children in attendance were read the Adventures of Tacky the Penguin. After the reading, kids participated in an art-making activity inspired by the book. A number of children received their very own copy of the chosen book of the day for their personal libraries. Weren't able to make it last weekend? Not to worry. AISD will return on October 29th and November 12th, 2016, to read The Day the Crayons Quit and Charlie Piechart. Kids, come to the remaining two events. Build your literacy skills while having fun!
