Summer Programs @ ALD

Those of you who didn't attend the Texas Snakes program last month missed out on a slithering good time. Kids, what was your favorite Summer Reading Program event at the Aldine Library?

 

Our winner!

Now that Summer Reading 2013 has completed it's time to select the winners for our prizes! To help inspire participation in the summer program we offered incentives that everyone gets (this year all teens that read 5 books or 600 minutes got a glow in the dark water bottle), and big prizes that every teen who completed the summer reading program could enter to win. HCPL offered 2 back packs filled with books for every branch, and this year at the Aldine Branch our Friends of the Library group was able to contribute a tablet for a teen SRP drawing prize. At the teen program Back To School-A-Pa-Looza we had our drawing for the Nook HD tablet winner, and one of our frequent customers Tavion Nelloms was the lucky teen whose name was drawn.

We are thrilled we could offer such an exciting prize to inspire teen participation in Summer Reading, and that it went to such a great kid.

Proud Bragging!

We have to brag a bit about how well everyone did in our Summer Reading Programs this year. We had 1,710 kids sign up and they read for 22, 061 minutes! For the teen program, 170 teens took part, and they read a total of 33,142 minutes. And our adults, all 128 of them, read for 27,672 minutes. Our Aldine customers love to read!
