One Step Over the Line

Do you have any superstitious habits? Do you make a mental note to not step on a crack or walk under a ladder?

Mural Repair

The Aldine Library's beloved mural is in need of repairs once again. Nearly a year ago, the Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston came out to the branch to patch up areas of the mural that needed attention. A few weeks ago, we noticed that pieces of tile had fallen off once more. We are again working with the folks at the Museum of Cultural Arts to fix the mural. We'll have it repaired as soon as we can. We hope that by providing additional caulking and taking other measures we will have a more permanent fix to the problem.

In the Works

Visitors to the Aldine Library may have noticed plywood covering one our windows in the YA section. Our window was shattered by a stray soccer ball in February. A new window has been ordered and we'll have it replaced as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!

 

Door Prize Winners

The Aldine Library's Read Across America Day on 3/8/12 featured two door prize drawings. One family of triplets had two lucky winners. The siblings took home a Dr. Seuss backpack and blanket after the celebration.
 

Spring

Spring is here. What better way to express the change in seasons than in a poem? 

The poet Dylan Thomas evokes images of the seasons in his Collected Poems:

"Symbols are selected from the years'

Slow rounding of the four seasons' coasts,

In autumn teach three seasons' fires

And four birds' notes."

In addressing spring, Dylan writes "Here in this spring, stars float along the void; I should learn spring by the cuckooing. . ."

Happy Spring to you!
