'Tis the Season

If the recent cooling in the weather is any indication the holiday season is here. We've added some holiday themed titles to our book display case in the hallway here at the Aldine Library to get you in the spirit of things. Here is a photo I took in West Texas of some red berries in the snow. Season's Greetings!

It's that time of year again- time to keep an eye out on gift ideas for the holidays. Black Friday may be over but here at the Aldine Library we have year 'round deals on donated books, DVDs, and CDs. Paperback books are selling for just 50 cents while hardback titles and CDs are just $1.00 each; DVD's are just at $2.00 each. New arrivals are coming in weekly. While you are at the branch stop by and take a look at what we have for sale. You just may be able to find something for that relative who is hard to shop for.
