Aldine Library, After Harvey

Our thoughts are with the members of our community who have experienced flooding in their homes and businesses or lost their cars to the floodwaters. If you were flooded and you have a dog or cat, you can stop by the library and pick up pet food courtesy of the SPCA.
Rainwater came through the roof of the Aldine Library in places, and, as a result, the library doesn’t smell so great, but, otherwise, we had no damage. We will resume our normal schedule starting Monday, Sept. 11.
Four Harris County libraries will be closed for an extended period of time due to flood damage, and we have displaced staff from three of those four branches working with us here at Aldine. We are so glad to have them!
