Did you know? iPads at Aldine

Did you know that iPads are available once again to check out at the Aldine Library? We had some issues with upgrading to the latest Apple software that prevented us from checking them out for a while. However, now all of our iPads are upgraded and ready for you to use. You can check out iPads to use inside the library building for a 2 hour period of time. Borrowers must have a Harris county library card for at least 30 days to check out iPads. Also, you need to have your library card present to check them out.  Enjoy using an Apple iPad today!

Avoid Standing in Line!

Self checkoutYou don't have to wait in line for a staff member to check out your items for you. If all you want to do is check out, you can do it yourself at one of these computers. They are easy to use and quite helpful during our busier times when lines are long. If you want to be shown how to use them, just let any member of our staff know. We would be glad to help.
