Asian Culture and the Chinese Language at Aldine Library

The Aldine Library's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event that was held on Wednesday, May 25th at 6:30 PM was a smash hit. Ms. Erin Hong, owner and operator of Houston's Charm Chinese School, gave a presentation to children and adults about Asian culture and geography. In addition, she spoke about the history of Chinese people in the United States. Then, Ms. Hong taught the meaning of several different Chinese characters. Children practiced writing the characters with crayons. At the end of the presentation, Ms. Hong quizzed children on the characters and their meaning. 

再见! zài jiàn! Goodbye!

Music, Fun, Dance, and Bubbles!


If you were at the Aldine Library on Wednesday afternoon of this week then you no doubt heard saw a plethora of bubbles floating about and surely heard an infectious bass beat that made you want to move. Bubble Parties Texas was on site for music, fun, and lots of bubbles! Kids grooved to the beat and also enjoyed participating in a Hula Hoop contest, a Limbo contest, and Mambo dance line around the library. Great fun for everyone!

 

Live Cow, Now!

On Thursday June 18th, a traveling milking parlor featuring a live cow visited the Aldine Library. A truck pulled up to the parking lot with a trailer in tow and milked a cow as curious children looked on. Thanks to Southwest Dairy Farmers for coming to the Aldine Library!
