It's Official: Ryan is a Sweetheart!

Ryan with His Birtday PieRecently, Texas Sweethearts & Scoundrels featured me as one of their Sweethearts. How they came to the conclusion that, I'll never know. Anyway, if you would like to know a little bit more about a staff member who enjoys serving the Aldine area, then feel free to take a peek. The group consists of Texas writers and illustrators, who have come together to promote reading to all ages and I must say that it was fun to answer their questions.

All That It's Cracked Up to Be

Visitors to the Aldine Library may have noticed our lovely mural. Upon closer inspection, visitors may have noticed some cracks in the mural. These cracks are due to the building foundation shifting. We have let the appropriate folks about the damage. Our nice mural will be patched up ASAP.

 

The Art Cart Is Ready!

As promised we have the finished art cart to show you. Come and see the cart in person when you visit our booth at this year's Houston Art Car Parade, May 22nd. Thanks to all the teens who worked on making this our best art cart yet. Even more thanks to the awesome video they made. Check it out!

Spanish YA Books Have Moved!

Over the last few months the Aldine Branch Library has been fortunate enough to have its Spanish YA collection as much as it has. As a result we have moved the book to a location a bit more accommodating. So if you need help finding the new home for the collection then just ask any of our staff members.
