Mission Accomplished

dawn

It's a new dawn at the Aldine Library. The HCPL catalog system upgrade and migration is now complete. You can access your account online as before. It may take staff a little longer to process new library cards, etc., as we get accustomed to the system. Thank you for your patience and for bearing with us as we learn the ropes of our new software! 

 

National Healthy Skin Month is November 1st through November 30th

Did you know that November is National Healthy Skin Month?  Today we gave away small bars of Ivory soap.

Why Ivory soap?  During Toddler Time, the kids found out that Ivory soap is the only soap that floats.  Ivory soap is so "pure it floats" because of air bubbles.  Every child who attended story time received a sample.

The leftovers were then given to our other customers.  Try it out.  Another way to use Ivory soap is to make bath crayons.  Grab a grater, a bar of ivory soap, some food coloring, and a little water, and go!  These are fun and easy + fun -- and no strange chemicals, either!

So visiting the library is not just about reading, e-books and computers.  You are able to learn many interesting things as well.  So stop by the Aldine library and see what is happening.  

Did I say anything about our caterpillars and butterflies?  That is coming up next.
