Houston Art Car Parade

The Bunny & The Book Cart

If you follow the Aldine Branch on Twitter, then you know that we participated again in last month's Houston Art Car Parade. As always, it was a blast. For the fourth year in a row the branch was there with an art book cart. To celebrate the achievement our teen volunteers created a little video for your enjoyment.

If you are having trouble viewing this video then you can watch it here.

See You at the Art Car Parade

Aldine's Fish Book CartSunday is the big day of the Houston Art Car Parade. Once again the Aldine branch will be there along with other HCPL branches. The parade runs from 1pm-3pm, so that gives you plenty of time to stop by our tent in the morning. You can see our cool art book carts up-close, participate in a craft, or even register for a library card! If you can't make it, then don't worry. We'll be tweeting the whole time. We're excited and hope to see you there!

Art Cart 2011

The Aldine Branch teens have begun work on our 3rd annual art cart. The last two years the Aldine cart, along with carts from other branches, have been present at HCPL's booth at the Houston Art Car Parade. Stay tuned for further details and see what the teens come up with this year. 

The Library + Art Cars + Dan Aykroyd = FUN!

Dan Aykroyd and young fanThe Art Car Parade hosted by The Orange Show for Visionary Arts was held this past weekend in downtown Houston. The Harris County Public Library participated in the event for the second year in a row by having a booth in the parade’s Fun Zone. Know this, fun was certainly had. Not only was HCPL able to share information about its services to many parade goers, but it was able to flex its artistic muscles as well. Three art book carts were on display, which were created by teen volunteers from various branches. Plus, kids had the opportunity to create their own art cars with a craft provided by the library.

Houston Art Car Parade This Weekend

Book CartIt’s that time of year again. It’s time for The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art’s annual Art Car Parade. For the second year now the Harris County Public Library will have a tent at the event. So while you are taking in all the art in motion stop by and visit HCPL. We will have information about our services, a craft for children and our own art book carts on display. Aldine’s book cart this year is called, “Robo Dumpty.” The parade starts at 1pm, but come early for the festivities.
