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.

Aldine Branch Library seeks volunteer literacy tutors

The Aldine Branch Library is seeking volunteer tutors to help adults improve basic reading and writing skills.
Adult literacy tutors meet once or twice weekly with an adult student using materials provided by the library.  In addition to basic reading skills, tutors help students meet related daily life needs such as reading for work, to children, or for personal information and inspiration.
 

Seeking Summer Volunteers

sun shining through clouds

I don't know about you but I sure have been enjoying these cool spring mornings we've been having this week. Soon, however, the heat will be on and that means one thing: summer! 

As the school year winds down, we here at the Aldine Library are busily preparing for the Summer Reading Program that will commence in June. During the summer, we need volunteers from the community to help us out with the many activities that will be going on. 

Teens, are you at least 15? Do you need volunteer hours for school? Adults, would you like to help out the library? Then step up to the plate and fill out a volunteer application form!
