The Tree is Up!

The Aldine Branch Library hopes everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. We're shifting gears for the winter and have put up a tree. We hope you can visit and see it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 To celebrate the holiday, some of the staff members at the Aldine Branch wish to share what he/she is thankful for this year.

Study Hall Update

Tomorrow the study hall for teens will be held in the lab, rather than the meeting room so that the Aldine Branch Library can serve as host to a couple of extra programs. The study hall will be back in the meeting room next week. The library would like to thank the teens for being so accommodating.

Aldine Dresses Up

To celebrate the costume wearing season the Aldine Branch staff dressed up as some crazy characters! David, one of the circulation assistants, came as a Houston Public Library employee even though we are the Harris County Public Library. That David is one crazy guy.

Batty for Books

We thought we would give you a sneak peak at the craft planned for Thursday’s Bilingual Story Time. Don’t worry. The craft isn’t as scary as the picture. See you at 10:30 AM in the meeting room!

Come Try a Netbook

Netbook Open On DeskThe Aldine Branch Library now has a netbook available for checkout. The machine is ideal for surfing the Web, so if you’re just interested in checking email or catching up on the news you might want to give this mini-laptop a go.

Like our laptops, card holders can use the netbook for two hours in the building. As you can see, the Aldine staff has practiced a bit on the netbook in order to answer any of your questions. We would love to have your feedback, as the netbook is available for a trial basis.

Aldine Joins VEAC

The Aldine Branch Library was selected by Aldine Senior High School to serve on the school district’s Vertical Educational Advisory Committee (VEAC). The committee consists of parents, local businesses, and other community representatives. The group will meet monthly to discuss issues and provide feedback to the superintendent. Branch librarian, Clara Maynard, will represent the library. The Aldine Branch is proud to serve on such a committee.
