Starry Day, Starry Night at Aldine Library

Friday, June 17th at 2 PM was supposed to be an hour of magic at Aldine Library with none other than Ronald McDonald. Ronald was not able to make it. In his place, creative magic unfolded at Aldine in the form of beautiful chalk illustrations done by children in the style of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night. It was a time of great family fun. The chalk drawings are now on display in the children's section of the library. Come by, take a look, and enjoy the night skies.

Spooktacular Crafts

Checkout the spooktacular witches broom that the children made yesterday. Many of the families who attended the Halloween party had requested the directions for the craft.  I have attached a pdf file of the instructions that  Ms. Dawn created; this project was adapted from a blog written by momdot.com.

Next Monday night, children and their families are welcome to join Twilight Tales at 7 pm. We will be creating another fun project, and this program does not require registration.
