Study Hall Update

Tomorrow the study hall for teens will be held in the lab, rather than the meeting room so that the Aldine Branch Library can serve as host to a couple of extra programs.

Aldine Dresses Up

Netbook Open On DeskThe Aldine Branch Library now has a netbook available for checkout. The machine is ideal for surfing the Web, so if you’re just interested in checking email or catching up on the news you might want to give this mini-laptop a go.
