Tea: the Golden Treasure

May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month! We're celebrating at the Aldine LIbrary by gathering in the Meeting Room on 5/15 at 3:30 PM to watch a movie about about the importance of tea in the life and culture of Taiwan. Afterwards, we will enjoy drinking a pot tea and having some snacks. Come join us!

Aldine Chimes into the #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign

Today was the official launch of the the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign! A hashtag campaign trying to give voice to the need for books that reflect the many varied experiences people have walking this Earth, and call attention to the fact that the books being published right now don't reflect diversity we see at Aldine everyday. Please read more about the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign on it's website.

I was so excited about this campaign I wanted to get the whole Aldine community involved! Here are a few thoughts by a few teens about why we need diverse books!

Monster Snacking

Kids, are you hungry? How about cyclops eyes or swampy s'mores? Does a giant squid sandwich tempt your tummy? These delicious dishes and more are available in A Monster Cookbook: Simple Recipes for Kids. The book provides instructions and step-by-step photos on how to make simple snacks with a monster theme. It's a ghoulish good time!
