Don't forget that in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month the Aldine Branch will be hosting a celebration tomorrow. There will be many things to enjoy like music, crafts, and so much more. The event is free to the public and will run from 10am to 2pm. We hope to see you there!
Meet Elodio. He's a student in the area and enjoys coming to the Aldine Branch. He likes it so much that he took it upon himself to raise money for the branch. Lately he has been collecting the loose change he finds and keeping it in an old candy box so that he can give it to the branch once it is full.
When he turned in his first donation we asked him why he was gathering the change for us. He said that he wanted to make sure the "library stays open forever." Also according to Elodio, it is his hope that kids will always be able to come to the library and have fun. We thank you, Elodio, for your efforts. We are glad that we can be here for you.
Teens, now that the Summer Reading Program is completed, Web 2.Yo! will be returning to its regular weekly meetings. Starting September 10th the Internet class for those who want more will be back every Monday from 4pm-5pm. We will kick off the session with a number of activities, including starring in a music video, as well as visiting resources dedicated to remembering 9/11.
Teens, school for Aldine ISD starts on Monday. It will be a busy day. There will be new subjects to study, new textbooks to read, and new friends to make. Once it is over, you'll need to wind down and what better way to do so than with a movie? That's right. The Aldine Branch will be showing a movie to celebrate the first day of school. The show starts at 3PM in the meeting room and we'll see you there. And bring that new friend you made along with you.
Good news! In partnership with Precinct 1, HCPL offers computer classes, PCs for public access, and WiFi services at Lincoln Park. This is a great opportunity for those who wish to strengthen his/her computer skills. Remember though, this is a technology lab. To check out materials please visit the Aldine Branch Library.
The teens at the Aldine Branch have been hard at work on their latest project. With the help of on-line sources, like ujam, they have been able to convert their recordings of popular poetry into original musical scores. What does that mean? Well, what you are hearing when you listen to the pieces is their voice converted into a musical instrument. Pretty cool, right?
The new series is being called Poetry Jam and make sure you don't miss the other works as we release them in the coming weeks. First up--checkout Daniela's take on an Edgar Allan Poe classic. She really captures the anxiety his work typically conjures up, if you ask us.
