You may not have known it, but you were being counted at the Aldine Library on Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, as part of Texas Library Snapshot Day. 

Presented in partnership between the Texas Library Association and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Texas Library Snapshot Day runs April 26th through May 7th, 2010. Its purpose is to provide a way for libraries of all types across Texas to show what happens in a single day in their libraries.

Robots at Aldine are an Automatic Success

The Aldine Branch Library must thank Jefferson Davis High School’s robotics club, Robatos Locos, for taking the time to visit with the teens. This is the third year Robatos Locos has been out to visit, and each year the club somehow outdoes the last. A record number were in attendance for exciting demonstrations and a chance to operate robots of all shapes and sizes.

The Aldine Library celebrated its 34th anniversary with cake, coffee, and camaraderie. Ms. Rhoda Goldberg, HCPL Library Directory, was on site for the festivities. Staff and patrons reminisced about days gone by while viewing photographs of past branch events. Folks also enjoyed looking through a scrapbook of library happenings that featured newspaper clippings, photographs, and fliers. The Aldine Library looks forward to serving you in the years ahead!

Web 2.Yo! Cruising Along
