Happy Spring!

  Today is the official first day of Spring and the 46th anniversary of the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle!  While you are enjoying what we hope to be some beautiful Texas Spring like weather, please take a moment to share this classic book with your child along with the many fabulous Eric Carle books we have at the Library.  If you can't make it to the Library, access the official Eric Carle website for fun and educational stories, games and activities! Happy Spring!

The Big Spring Clean

Ah, spring time. Warmer temps, Spring Break, and cleaning! Here at Aldine we are having our annual Library Spring Cleanup Day on the morning of Wednesday, March 11th from 9:30 am - 12 pm. We are seeking volunteers from the community who will help us prepare for the summer by dusting, wiping down tables, picking up litter, and performing general housekeeping duties. If you can join us and help out call the library at (281) 445-5560.

Spring Is In the Air

Yes Spring is finally here. Visit the Baldwin Boettcher Library and fill our "communitree" with a butterfly to celebrate the season.  Just come by the circulation desk at the front of the library and make a donation.  A butterfly with your name and/or words of choice will be placed upon the tree for all to see. Just like our wonderful patrons, donations are always welcome no matter what the season.  So we look forward to seeing you soon.  Don't forget to stop by the front desk and see our "communitree".

The Month of March Madness

Why do we love the month of March?

We have so many events and several holidays. It may seem hard to keep up. Even the term "March Madness" immediately makes one think of basketball and rightly so, the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is known as March Madness.  However, there are numerous other reasons to love the month of March. A few of the big ones are The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the start of Spring, Mardi Gras and of course, St. Patrick's Day.

Want to read about starting a Spring garden, the origins of Mardi Gras, why rodeo's are so popular or who is St. Patrick exactly and why do we have a day in his honor?

Spring Cleaning 101

It's the time when you can bring out your swimming suits again, sport those spectacular sun glasses, wiggle your toes in the sand at the beach, and start your spring cleaning! Ok, that last one didn't sound very appealing but there is really no point in avoiding it. I know spring cleaning is just not one of those fun things you wish to do but do not fret because your local library is here to help. Below is a list of books that can give you great tips on de-cluttering and decorating. Give your home a fresh start this spring and stop by the library and check out these helpful books.
