Summer Fun at Aldine

Wow, we've been having some exciting Summer Reading Program activities at the Aldine Library! Between Mad Science nights and our weekly, Wednesday programs, we've been having fun for everyone. Here are photos of some recent events:

Get Fit for School... With Zumba For Kids!

Books, Fun and Now Zumba Dance with Kids! We got it all!
Did you have your share of fun this summer? I know I know you did! Well, we are drawing very close to the end of Summer Reading Program but the fun still continues. So get ready for the Grand Finale because we have more fun in store for you.


Join us for Around the World Party on August 8th 2013 and celebrate the end of a successful Summer Reading Program 2013 with Zumba Dance for kids! We will also have refreshments. The event will take place at the Community Center across from the Library entrance at 3 PM. Don’t forget to mark your calendars. See you there!


Dominos Pizza Party @ ALD Coming Soon!

Hey kids, the Dominos Pizza Party @ the Aldine Library is just one week away! The sign up starts on the MONDAY before the event (22 July). There will be two programs (2pm & 3pm). At the time of sign up, choose which program you would like to attend (we will have two different colored tickets: one color for the 2 pm show and another color for the 3 pm show). Children must be present to pick up tickets. There will be a maximum # of 25 children per program. Children 6 and older may attend. Prepare to have fun!

Goodbye Summer, Hello School Year!

The Summer Reading Program at HCPL has come to a close, and what fun it was. Check the Katy Branch Flickr Stream or Facebook Gallery to reminisce about your favorite SRP moments before you jump into the 2012 school year!

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No it's...MY LIBRARIAN!?

Have you ever wanted to skydive? This Thursday, Northwest Branch Librarian Deborah Sica and circulation assistant Connie Villa will do just that! Now you might be asking yourself “who would want to jump out of a perfectly good plane?” Well, if you’ve ever seen Deborah arrive for work on her motorcycle then you already know she’s not exactly your grandmother’s librarian. As for Connie, she has worked previously as an airline attendant for 12 years, so this probably isn’t her first inclination to want to jump. Both women are incredibly fearless, and for this we applaud them (and wish them lots of luck). Check back soon for actual photos.

Fall Songs and Fingerplays

Music and fingerplays are a huge part of the storytime experience.  Below are a few seasonal tunes that you may enjoy during our programs.
