What's Going On at the Aldine Library?


Visitors to the Aldine Library will notice some flyers on the front door advertising some upcoming events at the branch. What's going on? Spring Break is fast approaching!

Teens, do you need community service hours? Are you at least 16 years of age? Are you reliable, responsible, and punctual? We are seeking volunteers to help out at the library the week of March 14th - 19th. 

We are also having two special events for teenagers during the week of Spring Break. On Wednesday, March 16th from 2-3 PM we are having a job search skills seminar for teens entitled "When I Grow Up." On Thursday March 17th from 2-3 PM is a Food Wars Cupcake Challenge for teens and tweens. Design a cupcake based on a book. Sign up at the information desk. Supplies will be provided.

Celebrate the Harlem Renaissance!

Come and celebrate the Harlem Renaissance on Monday at 4:00 during Teen Time. We'll be making fashionable items from the twenties and watching the movie "Storm Weather" starring Lena Horne (20th Century Fox). All teens and tweens are welcome to this event as part of our recognition of African American History Month.

Teen Upcycling Programs in February

Starting today, the Northwest Branch will host an upcycling craft series for teens and tweens in the month of February. Upcycling is a fancy way to say "recycle materials into something cool." They will get the chance to take old materials, such as shirts, magazines, books, or other things they'd have lying around, and they'll make something more out of it. There will be four different things they can make:

Feb 4
T-Shirt Tote Bag: Make a fashionable bag out of old t-shirts.

Feb 11
Matchbox Valentines: Take mini matchboxes or tins to decorate and give away as valentines.

Feb 18
Magazine Cut Up: Take apart magazines and learn to make jewelry and things out of magazines.

Feb 25
​Book Bag: See how to take apart covers of old books and make purses and bags out of them.

All crafts will be taking place in the Teen Area from 4pm - 5pm. It's recommended people bring materials to use, but materials will also be available at the time of craft.

Snow Shooters

 

Come to the Tuesday Craft on January 19 at 4:30 to create your very own snow shooter. All kids 8-12 are welcome.
