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

Students at Netbooks

It’s been two weeks since Web 2.Yo! started back, and we’ve had a blast. There are so many cool things on-line to stumble across each class. So far teens have discovered some new sites involving music and art. This week we’ll focus on videos. If you missed the music and art classes don’t worry because we’ll bring them back soon. Stay tuned.

 

AC Out, Spring Air In

Folks visiting the Aldine library today may notice a slight elevation in room temperature. The air conditioning is out of order. The county is swiftly working to resolve the issue. The AC will be up and running as soon as possible. Until then, enjoy the fresh spring breeze as we prop open the library doors.

Robots Invade Aldine!

Toy Robot and Astronauts

Teens, this Thursday stop by the meeting room to checkout the robots. That’s right, robots. The robotics club from Jefferson Davis High School is coming by to not only share stories, but its robots as well. You’ll get a demo on how the robots work, plus a chance to make them do your bidding. That’s this Thursday, April 15th, at 4pm.

 

Mural in Motion

A life-size, ceramic mosaic on a curved wall greets patrons at the entrance of the Aldine Library. Do you know its history? Under the direction of artist Reginald Adams with the Museum of Fine arts and the guidance of Israel Barbosa, Stovall Middle School students and four Aldine teens helped create the 10 foot high and 80 foot wide mosaic in the summer of 2002. The mural is based on a photo of 12 real people with books, such as Adams with his son on his shoulders, Barbosa on a skateboard, children walking, riding a bicycle, pulling a wagon, and on roller skates. The mural also features a senior adult man pushing a woman in a wheelchair.
