Welcome, Maggie!

The Aldine Library has a new addition to its staff: Ms. Maggie Block, Young Adult Librarian! Maggie was born in raised in upstate New York. Her mother is a third generation Houstonian. She is excited to be back in the city of Houston. Maggie completed her Master of Library Science education in July 2012 at Indiana University. She has been volunteering and interning at small town Indiana libraries since 2010. Before coming to Houston, Maggie worked as the assistant teen librarian at Plainfield Indiana's library. We are glad to have her on board. Welcome, Maggie!
 

Self Checkout

You may notice something different when you come inside the Aldine Library. Our self checkout machines are now lined up in a row! These machines are easy to use and quite helpful during our busier times when lines are long. If you want to be shown how to use them just let any member of our staff know. We would be glad to help.

We have an App for that!

Ms. Nora is doing something new at Toddler Storytime. Every first Tuesday, in addition to the awesome stories she tells, there will be iPad activities.  Sometimes, these will be activities for the parents and children to do together. Sometimes, the stories will come from the iPad. Either way, it’s a new way to bring stories and reading to our children.  If you enjoy the apps that are used, you can get them for your own iPad.  Or come in and check out an iPad with your library card to use in the library for 2 hours. Toddler time is every Tuesday at 10:30 am in our meeting room. See you there!abc go app picture
