Nature Discovery

Tarantulas, snakes, and rabbits oh my! The first event of the Aldine Branch Library's Summer Program featured a program by the Nature Discovery Center. Children and tweens saw critters up close while learning about the wide world of animals. Stay tuned for more great programs!

Aldine Branch Library seeks volunteer literacy tutors

The Aldine Branch Library is seeking volunteer tutors to help adults improve basic reading and writing skills.
Adult literacy tutors meet once or twice weekly with an adult student using materials provided by the library.  In addition to basic reading skills, tutors help students meet related daily life needs such as reading for work, to children, or for personal information and inspiration.
 

Seeking Summer Volunteers

sun shining through clouds

I don't know about you but I sure have been enjoying these cool spring mornings we've been having this week. Soon, however, the heat will be on and that means one thing: summer! 

As the school year winds down, we here at the Aldine Library are busily preparing for the Summer Reading Program that will commence in June. During the summer, we need volunteers from the community to help us out with the many activities that will be going on. 

Teens, are you at least 15? Do you need volunteer hours for school? Adults, would you like to help out the library? Then step up to the plate and fill out a volunteer application form!

Experience China

Hey everyone! Join us as we celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month by watching a movie that blends soothing music with beautiful imagery of China. The video was filmed in and around the following cities and locations: Beijing, Chengdu, Guiyang, Guilin, Yangshuo, Xingping, Yangai, Nanjing, Huangshan Mountain and Hefei.

We'll gather in the Meeting Room at 4 PM on Thursday, May 10th to watch the film. Refreshments will be served. See you then!

On the Mend

primary colors

As you know, the color printer has been out of order at the Aldine Library. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Rest assured, we are taking action and are ordering the necessary parts to get the color printer up and running again. Thanks for your patience! 

Storytube Contest!

Our teens entered the Storytube contest with a video promoting the book The Missing Girl. Please vote for them. They're in the 14-18 age group. http://www.storytubes.info/drupal/node/59
 

One Step Over the Line

Do you have any superstitious habits? Do you make a mental note to not step on a crack or walk under a ladder?

Mural Repair

The Aldine Library's beloved mural is in need of repairs once again. Nearly a year ago, the Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston came out to the branch to patch up areas of the mural that needed attention. A few weeks ago, we noticed that pieces of tile had fallen off once more. We are again working with the folks at the Museum of Cultural Arts to fix the mural. We'll have it repaired as soon as we can. We hope that by providing additional caulking and taking other measures we will have a more permanent fix to the problem.
