Teen Programs - Week of November 28

Are you interested in crafting, or coding, or both?! On Monday, November 28, from 4:30-5:30 PM, teens can come and make a craft in the Teen Area. We will craft for a cause by making superhero capes for children. No sewing skills required!

Then, on Tuesday, November 29 from 4:30-5:30 PM, we’re learning how to code with robots! Using Dash & Dot teens can learn how to code the robot to navigate through an obstacle course. Dash & Dot robots are part of Codename Gener8, a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-focused program is made possible through a grant from the Best Buy foundation and the generosity of the Friends of the Library-Kingwood (FOLK).

AISD at Aldine Library

storytime

On Saturday, September 24th, the Aldine Independent School District's Curriculum & Instruction Department was at the Aldine Library from 10:30 AM-11:30 PM. Why? To read, facilitate, and monitor a special Literacy and Art program! Children in attendance were read the Adventures of Tacky the Penguin. After the reading, kids participated in an art-making activity inspired by the book. A number of children received their very own copy of the chosen book of the day for their personal libraries. Weren't able to make it last weekend? Not to worry. AISD will return on October 29th and November 12th, 2016, to read The Day the Crayons Quit and Charlie Piechart. Kids, come to the remaining two events. Build your literacy skills while having fun!

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.
