OUTREACH TO ALDINE ISD

Conley Elementary (AISD) Open House, 3/8/11It was inspiring to see the crowd of families in attendance at the Conley Elementary School Open House (Aldine Independent Schhol District) on Tuesday evening, March 8. Conley is located halfway between the Aldine and Barbara Bush branches of the Harris County Public Library. Members of the Barbara Bush Library Friends distributed handouts about the library system and gave the children bookworm erasers and READ temporary tattoos. Best of all, they made 33 library cards for the children and their families. It is great to see the schools, libraries, and parents working together for the good of these young children.
