Feeling Good

New books are arriving at the Aldine Library! One of the new titles is Feeling Good Together by David D. Burns, MD. Dr. Burns is also the author of the bestseller Feeling Good: the New Mood Therapy. Both books deal with cognitive behavioral therapy, a form of treatment that explores patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions. The idea is that in examining the beliefs that direct their thoughts, people can then modify their patterns of thinking to improve the way they cope with problems. Come take a look at these titles by Dr....

APE's short films

This winter APE has put our energy into creating two short films for different short film contests.

The first contest was for Texas' Collaborative Summer Reading program. The challenge was to make a movie inspired by this year's theme for Summer Reading "Spark a Reaction" in 1 minute and 30 seconds (which was a BIT of a squeeze). Our artistic volunteers created a short comedic narrative they titled "The Cursed Book."

 

Unfortunately due to some scheduling difficulties APE wasn't quite able to finish this movie in time from the contest's deadline.
