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!

 

Mexican Foil Art Craft

Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to recognize the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States. It is also a time to celebrate their heritage and culture. Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15th and ends on October 15, and what better way to celebrate a culture than to explore some of their art and traditions. Come join us here at High Meadows Library on Monday September 29th at 4:00 p.m. for our Mexican Foil Art Project. Try your hand at making this beautiful traditional art and enjoy some snacks and refreshments as well.

Children's Zumba!

Dancing and working out. What could it be? It's Zumba for little ones you see! Dance and exercise is a great combination. The only requirement is good concentration!
