Volunteer Clean-Up Day

Aldine volunteers

It has been a busy summer here at the Aldine Library. That's the way we like it. Now that the Summer Reading Program has drawn to a close- and with school getting ready to start- we decided the library could use a good cleaning. This morning, a few good volunteers from the community stepped up to the plate and went above and beyond the work provided by the library janitorial service. Tables, computers, doors, windows and desks got a good swabbing. Thanks to the effort of our teen and adult volunteers, the building is looking nice, neat, and extra clean.

Snakes in the Library!

In case you missed it there were snakes in the Aldine Library on Wednesday, August 1st! Not to worry. The snakes were part of an informative and educational Summer Reading Program event featuring Texas Snakes & More. Everyone had a slithering good time.

Tasty Cakes Without the Cholesterol

 

I don't know about you but I have a sweet tooth. Just look at these cakes in the photo above taken at a grocery store. Yum!! 

If I were to enjoy a generous slice of each of these cakes, though, my cholesterol level would inch its way up higher. What if there were a way to cut the cholesterol but still retain the taste and texture of these cakes? 

Ronald in the House

There was much activity at the Aldine Library yesterday as Ronald McDonald paid a visit to a crowd of eager children. Ronald delighted kids and adults alike with jokes and magic tricks. After the show, Ronald took pictures with families and children. Everyone was lovin' it.
