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

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!
