iPads Now Available!

We now have iPads available for checkout!  It's just like checking out a laptop, which means you need only be 12-years of age or older, have an account in good-standing, and registered with a library card for at least 30 days.  Beyond that, given that you have your library card with you, feel free to check one out and use it here in the library for a couple of hours.  We have approximately 100 apps installed on each one, which means you're unlikely to run short of interest in familiarizing yourself with all that it can do.  Come take advantage of yet one more invaluable service your library offers!

Special Pajama Storytime

On Monday, February 25th at 7 PM, the Aldine library is having a special Family Storytime in the Meeting Room. In honor of Black History Month, we'll celebrate and experience African American stories using an Ipad! Also, we'll have a special guest musician play for us. Come for fun, activities (including a craft), and music. See you there!

New Gadgets What Do I Do?

Christmas overwhelmed me with so much new technology. I wonder what my kids were even thinking. They tell me it is time for me to get with it. If you or anyone else is feeling like this, come by the library every Saturday in the month of January and February. We have (Tech Tutors) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. available to help you.
