Our country books are arranged in order of the alphabet and housed at the beginning of the children's non-fiction section of the library collection. Come take a look!

Going Green

Hey, folks! Spring is in the air. It’s the season for gardening! Do you have a green thumb or wish you did? The Aldine Library can help out. Come check out our collection of gardening books. We have some on display in the lobby of the library. Also, we can point out additional titles in our non-fiction section to help you get started. 

 

Sidewalk Project

As you may have noticed, The City of Houston is replacing the sidewalks along Airline Drive and Dyna Drive. Today, the City began to work on the sidewalk along the entrance to the Aldine Library. A hydraulic crusher broke the concrete at the library's driveway this morning in the first phase of the project. Your vehicle can still enter and exit the parking lot at this point. Later, perhaps next week, another City of Houston contractor will tear up the concrete and replace it. We'll keep you updated as the project continues.
