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!
