Turning Things Around


There are some changes going on at Aldine. We are in the process of shifting books. As Bonnie noted in her blog, the Romance section has moved. Soon, we will remove some shelving. All this is being done to maintain the library, streamline the collection, and better serve you. Happy Holidays! 

Lights!

Photographing Your Family and Friends

We are in the Holiday season- the time for family and friends to gather. Don't forget to capture the moment with your camera! To help you in this endeavor, the Aldine Library has a copy of National Geographics's Photographing Your Family and All the Kids and Friends and Animals Who Wander Through Too by Joel Sartore with John Healey.

Hispanic Heritage in the Movies

The Aldine Library is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with movies. On Wednesday, September 17th at 4 PM, we are showing a film for the whole family about a young girl in Mexico who prepares to celebrate her Quince Anos (fifteenth birthday). Refreshments will be provided. On Friday September 19th at 3 PM, there will be a teen movie and discussion with free snacks. Join us for these special events. See you at the movies!

Volunteers Needed at Aldine!

The Aldine Library is in need of volunteers! Teens, do you need service hours for school? Adults, do you have some spare time and wish to help out? We have ongoing clerical work opportunities within the library for you. Also, during the month of October, we have two special events: Fall Festival and Patron Count Week. We could use your help!

Volunteer Requirements:

Back to School!

It's back to school time! To help kids get ready for the new academic year, the YMCA and Molina Health Care gave away backpacks and school supplies at the Aldine Library's Bilingual Storytime on Thursday, August 21st, 2014. Have a great school year, kids!  

There's Still Time!

The Summer Reading Program is fast drawing to a close. The program officially ends on Saturday, August 9th. Everyone be sure to turn in those reading logs as soon as possible. Kids, there's still time to get your free book and certificate of completion awarded after reading 10 books or 500 minutes. Teens, get  your ear buds after reading 5 books or 600 minutes. Adults, don't miss out on your coffee mug awarded after reading 5 books or 600 minutes. 

It's a Celebration of Summer Reading!

Summer Fun at Aldine

Wow, we've been having some exciting Summer Reading Program activities at the Aldine Library! Between Mad Science nights and our weekly, Wednesday programs, we've been having fun for everyone. Here are photos of some recent events:

Ronald McDonald in the House

Ronald McDonald was at the Aldine Library on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 25th. Ronald told jokes, performed magic tricks, and had both children and adults laughing. It was a fun time for all. Stay tuned for all of our summer events with our handy online calendar!
