The Rainbow Connection

We are not sure if this is definitive proof that you find riches at the end of the rainbow, but it is good enough for the staff at the Aldine Branch Library. At the very least it is a fitting end to a wonderful year. Not only is there new equipment to enhance your visit to the building, but turnout for programs has been impressive as well for both children and teen events. You guys are definitely using the library and we love it! We're so excited about what's to come in 2011 and we hope you are as well.

Self Checkouts: Come and Check Them Out!

Aldine teen, Yesenia Aguirre, successfully operates one of the Aldine Branch’s new self checkout machines.There are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who use a cashier to check out at the grocery store and there are those who use the self checkouts. No matter which one you are you can always come to the Aldine Branch Library. That’s because customers now have the option of checking out your items at our information desk or using our newly installed self checkout machines. Staff will always be available to help you with your needs, but sometimes you come to the library with a simply agenda—grab a book off the shelf, check it out and go. If that’s the case then just use one of the new machines where you can do the job yourself....

Chiptunes: A Recap

During Teen Read Week this year the Aldine Branch Library hosted a free chiptunes demonstration for the teens. The program was amazing and everyone had a great time. It was one of our largest turnouts of the year. Much thanks goes to the artist, Sievert, for coming out and meeting the kids. Not only did he rock, but he answered the million of great questions asked. Anyway we finally got some footage up, so check it out.

And all for free!Each Wednesday teens have gotten together to hunt for some really great sites and now it is time to shake things up a bit by meeting on a new day. Starting Monday, December 6th, Web 2.Yo! will gather in the Aldine Branch meeting room from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. We hope you can join us....
