Changes @ ALD

We are getting ready for some changes at the Aldine Library! Staff have been busy emptying shelves and moving books in preparation for the big move. The library will look different when we open on Friday, January 9th. Collections will be shifted and shelving will be removed. Come and see!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year! / Feliz Año Nuevo 2015!


 

The Aldine Library wishes you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year! This is a photo of my brother-in-law giving the peace sign. We wish you peace in the new year as well! We look forward to serving you and your family in 2015.

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.
