Aldine Teens Telling Their Story

Teen Recording AudioAlong with decorating the YA area of the Aldine Branch Library, the teens have immersed themselves in a digital storytelling project. They are busy writing, recording and editing brief movies that provide a bit of insight into what makes them who they are. Our study room was even converted into a makeshift recording booth while narration for their movies took place.

The kids are really excited about sharing their work, so keep an eye out for them as they come to a blog near you!

Building Improvement Update

Staff Member Drilling Holes for  WiringWe just wanted to take a second to update you guys on some improvements we are doing at the Aldine Branch. Outlets have been attached to the tops of our tables, so that it will be easier to plug in laptops and other electronic devices. Hopefully this will keep any customer from having to crouch, scrunch, or contort to get the power he or she needs. We have also taken extra steps to ensure that any extra cords will not be in the way.

This is just one project in a series of many we are working on to improve the library experience. Stay tuned for further updates!

Fun for All @ the Aldine Library Fall Festival!

Join us for the Aldine Library Fall Festival on Saturday, October 29th from 10 AM - 1 PM. Come enjoy face painting, a pumpkin carving contest, games, food and entertainment- free family fun for everyone! See you there! 

 

Their Space

Teens with Art SuppliesWanting to give the Young Adult section of the Aldine Branch Library a bit of a makeover, a group of teens have gotten together to let their creativity flow. For them, there’s just too much blank space that they can’t help but want to express themselves. Be on the lookout here on-line as well in the YA section of the building for updates of how things are going.
