Come On Get Happy!

Who wants to be happy? If you want to feel good fast you may want come on over to the Aldine Library and check out the book Happiness Now by Dr. Robert Holden.

Here is some wisdom from the author that retailers probably don't want you to hear: "unless you are happy with yourself, you won't be happy with what you have; no amount of purchases, products, or possessions can give you peace of mind." This is very true. Still, as Holden writes, we still keep trying to find a special thing that will make us happy. Instead of a change of wardrobe we need a change of mind. To be happy we must give up self judgment. Check out Dr. Holden's book at Aldine and read more about how to be happy now!

Anti-Valentine's Day Celebration

There was a Valentine celebration of sorts for teens at the Aldine Library on the afternoon Thursday, February 7th- an anti-Valentine celebration to be exact. Homemade, miniature catapults flung candy hearts. Black roses were crafted.  A piñata was broken and candy enjoyed. Why? To celebrate unrequited love and broken heartedness!

It was a memorable afternoon.
