Aldine

Future Prep kicks off with a Resume Workshop!

Future prep is a series of programs designed to help teenagers think about life after High School. Whether they know exactly what they want to do and need help figuring out how to get there, or if they haven't given it much thought and want to explore a few different options, Future Prep programs will help Aldine teens get to where they want to go.

Scary Books! YA display

Hey teens, are you looking for a new bone chilling book? Well, look no further then the YA book display area! There are books about ghosts, vampires, killers, zombies, and other horrors that will make you want to leave that lights on at night, or at least scream out once... or twice... maybe a few times...

Goodbye!

Eight years ago, I came to the Aldine Library, leaving my family behind in Louisiana. At first I was so homesick! But the wonderful staff and customers here soon made me feel at home.  I’ve had such wonderful time here with you all! There have been challenges, but I’ve had so much fun with you. I’ve grown and learned and become a better manager for being here.I’m off to a new assignment at the Barbara Bush Library. I’m excited about my new place but I will always be so grateful for my time here. It has been an honor and a joy to work at the Aldine Library. Thank you and goodbye!

 

A Deep Sadness

Like the rest of the Aldine community, we were shocked and saddened by the death of Stovall Middle School student, Jose Luis Meraz. When someone so young dies, it is such a great tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Meraz family and  the staff and students at Stovall Middle School.

 

Hispanic Heritage in the Movies

The Aldine Library is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with movies. On Wednesday, September 17th at 4 PM, we are showing a film for the whole family about a young girl in Mexico who prepares to celebrate her Quince Anos (fifteenth birthday). Refreshments will be provided. On Friday September 19th at 3 PM, there will be a teen movie and discussion with free snacks. Join us for these special events. See you at the movies!

Volunteers Needed at Aldine!

The Aldine Library is in need of volunteers! Teens, do you need service hours for school? Adults, do you have some spare time and wish to help out? We have ongoing clerical work opportunities within the library for you. Also, during the month of October, we have two special events: Fall Festival and Patron Count Week. We could use your help!

Volunteer Requirements:

Start the Year off Right!

Now that school has started, why not start the year off right? Come in to get a head start on those assignments and required reading. Don't forget that our website has research databases to help you when those term papers are due. And don't forget that we have the friendliest, most helpful staff in the world! We want you to help you make great grades this year!

Back to School!

It's back to school time! To help kids get ready for the new academic year, the YMCA and Molina Health Care gave away backpacks and school supplies at the Aldine Library's Bilingual Storytime on Thursday, August 21st, 2014. Have a great school year, kids!  

Teen Hangs is back!

Teen Hang Promotional Flier

After a long hiatus for Summer Reading, Teen Hangs is returning! Starting this week every Monday at 3:00pm we're going to have game consoles, computers, and game tables set up for teen enjoyment. Oh, there's also snacks and drinks every week too. So it's probably the coolest best thing you could do Monday afternoons, so you should probably start coming and never stop.

There's Still Time!

The Summer Reading Program is fast drawing to a close. The program officially ends on Saturday, August 9th. Everyone be sure to turn in those reading logs as soon as possible. Kids, there's still time to get your free book and certificate of completion awarded after reading 10 books or 500 minutes. Teens, get  your ear buds after reading 5 books or 600 minutes. Adults, don't miss out on your coffee mug awarded after reading 5 books or 600 minutes.
