A.P.E. Volunteers & the Art Car Parade 2013

May 11th was Houston's 26th annual art car parade and the Aldine Project Experience (APE) teens were part of the festivities. Our teen volunteers worked for weeks to create their own book cart. They also cut out many cardboard cars and trucks for children to decorate. On the day of the parade they set up the library's spot in the "Kid's Zone," asked kids to join in the craft, and helped them create their own little art cars. The craft was so popular that we ran out of cars before the parade even started. It was a great event and the teens were thrilled to be part of it.

Aldine Library Sidewalk Project

The City of Houston has begun their project to widen the sidewalk in front of the Aldine Library. Today, an excavator dug up the asphalt that comprised the STAFF parking lot driveway. However, the PUBLIC parking lot driveway is still intact.

We'll keep you posted on any updates or developments regarding this project!

Cultures of the World

Hey, kids!  Have you ever wondered about Canadians and their culture? Look no further than the Aldine Library! We have books about Canada as well as many other countries of the world. Our country books are arranged in order of the alphabet and housed at the beginning of the children's non-fiction section of the library collection. Come take a look!

Going Green

Hey, folks! Spring is in the air. It’s the season for gardening! Do you have a green thumb or wish you did? The Aldine Library can help out. Come check out our collection of gardening books.

Sidewalk Project

As you may have noticed, The City of Houston is replacing the sidewalks along Airline Drive and Dyna Drive. Today, the City began to work on the sidewalk along the entrance to the Aldine Library. A hydraulic crusher broke the concrete at the library's driveway this morning in the first phase of the project. Your vehicle can still enter and exit the parking lot at this point. Later, perhaps next week, another City of Houston contractor will tear up the concrete and replace it. We'll keep you updated as the project continues.

Restauración del estacionamiento en la biblioteca de Aldine

Estimados clientes de la biblioteca de Aldine,


El estacionamiento de la biblioteca de Aldine está consiguiendo una restauración muy necesario. Entonces el aparcamiento no estará disponible jueves 28 de marzo, el sábado, 30 de marzo y lunes 1 de abril. El proyecto debe estar terminado, esperamos, por la mañana del martes 2 de abril. Sin embargo, el tiempo es un factor de lo que puede tardar más o menos tiempo para completarlo.

La biblioteca de Aldine deja a nuestros clientes a encontrar aparcamiento adecuado en la zona. En todo momento, los trabajadores proporcionará una ruta para caminantes, jinetes de autobús, y sillas de ruedas para entrar en el edificio.

Parking Lot Resurfacing @ Aldine

Dear Aldine Patrons,

The Aldine library parking lot is getting a badly needed resurfacing / refinishing. The resurfacing project will begin on Thursday, March 28th. The project should be finished, we hope, by the morning of Tuesday, April 2nd. However, weather is a factor so it may take more or less time to complete it.

The library parking lot will be unavailable on Thursday, March 28th, Saturday, March 30th and Monday April 1st. The Aldine Library leaves it to our patrons to find suitable parking in the area. At all times, the resurfacing crew will provide a route for walkers, bus riders, and wheelchairs to get into the building.

Thank you for your patience during this time.
