Aldine's Fish Book CartSunday is the big day of the Houston Art Car Parade. Once again the Aldine branch will be there along with other HCPL branches. The parade runs from 1pm-3pm, so that gives you plenty of time to stop by our tent in the morning. You can see our cool art book carts up-close, participate in a craft, or even register for a library card! If you can't make it, then don't worry. We'll be tweeting the whole time. We're excited and hope to see you there!
