Literacy Services at Aldine Library

Hello, everyone,

I hope your summer is off to a good start. I want to bring to your attention Harris County Public Library's literacy services. Here at the Aldine Library, we offer ELA classes (English Language Aquisition) to those learning the English language. Classes meet in the Meeting Room each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 AM - 1 PM.

In addition to ELA classes, HCPL offers one-one-one ABE (Adult Basic Education) tutoring services to those who need help with literacy. Students meet with tutors here at the library.

Check out our website for more information about both ELA and ABE classes here.

Barbara Bush closed April 20th

Good Morning everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and dry this week. As many of you know, we've been closed the past couple days due to high water in the area. While we think the library itself is okay, surrounding areas (ie parking lots/streets) are still under water and we have no way of getting into the building. We will be closed again today and I just wanted to pass some info along to all of our customers. I am sure our being closed is a major inconvenience to a lot of our customers and hopefully we will be back to normal soon. 

Here are some things to know while the Barbara Bush Library is closed:
