Make a Big Difference in a Child's Life. Be a Book Buddy.

Do you enjoy working with children? Do you want to make a difference in a child's life? Then volunteer for HCPL's Book Buddies!

Book Buddies is a free program that brings children and volunteers (adults or teens) together to share the joy of reading. It pairs trained volunteers (Big Buddies) with children in Kindergarten through 3rd grades (Little Buddies). For 12 weeks, the Buddies meet once a week for 45 minutes of shared reading.

We're looking for summer volunteers at our library!

Summer Volunteers Needed!


Hi everyone! We are almost in mid-May. Summer is fast approaching. Parents, do you have a teen who is at least 16 years of age? Does your teen need something to do over the summer break? Consider volunteering at the Aldine Library! Volunteering teaches teens the importance of community service. Also, volunteering can sometimes be a part of both high school graduation requirements and scholarship applications.

Adults are welcome to volunteer, too!

A volunteer orientation will be held on May 16th from 5-6 PM.  Please join us!

 

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.

Volunteers Needed at Aldine Library!

Friends, are you interested in donating your time to volunteer at the Aldine Library? Are you 16 or older? We could use your help! We need volunteers not only after school and on Saturdays but also for some upcoming special events.

The Aldine Library and the Aldine-Greenspoint YMCA Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, October 10th from 10 am-12 pm. We need volunteers to help set up, to staff the event, and to take down.

Thanks for a Job Well Done


We have had a super summer here at the Aldine Library. A superb team of volunteers have tirelessly been working behind the scenes to ensure a smooth library operation.  On Friday, July 24th, we hosted a lunch to honor our dedicated teen volunteers. Thanks for a job well done, guys! We appreciate all of your time and effort this summer.

A Big Thanks for a Thankless Job

On any list of onerous tasks, preparing a tax return is bound to be near the top. If for no other reason than that, we owe a big thank you to the good people of AARP Tax Aide who, every February, set up shop at several HCPL branches to give tax help to anyone who walks through the door and asks. The operative word there is “give.” They give their time, their expertise and their effort free of charge, and we, at HCPL, are grateful to them.
