With the final stretch of school in progress and the Summer Reading Program (SRP) just around the corner Anime For Youth will be meeting for the last time tomorrow, May 5th, from 3:30PM to 4:30PM. Don't worry though because the club plans to start up again once SRP ends.

The club will mark this final meeting by celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. All are welcome to visit, while Ryan shares his experiences of living over in Japan. Come see his pictures, listen to his stories, and ask him any questions that you may have.

 

Tibet

May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month! The Aldine Library is celebrating by showing a special movie about Tibet. Come join us on Tuesday, May 10th at 4 PM in the Meeting Room to view this film. Blending hypnotic music and breathtakingly beautiful imagery, the movie provides a glimpse of the land called "the Roof of the World."

Refreshments will be provided. See you there!

Patched Up

The Aldine Library's nice mural has been repaired! The Musuem of Cultural Arts, Houston, came out to the library and patched up our mosaic. The shifting of the building's foundation may have been a factor in the creation of cracks in the mural.

The repair work was all made possible by the generous funding of the Friends of the Aldine Library. Please consider making a donation to show your support and appreciation for the Aldine Library!

 

It's Official: Ryan is a Sweetheart!

Ryan with His Birtday PieRecently, Texas Sweethearts & Scoundrels featured me as one of their Sweethearts. How they came to the conclusion that, I'll never know. Anyway, if you would like to know a little bit more about a staff member who enjoys serving the Aldine area, then feel free to take a peek. The group consists of Texas writers and illustrators, who have come together to promote reading to all ages and I must say that it was fun to answer their questions.

All That It's Cracked Up to Be

Visitors to the Aldine Library may have noticed our lovely mural. Upon closer inspection, visitors may have noticed some cracks in the mural. These cracks are due to the building foundation shifting. We have let the appropriate folks about the damage. Our nice mural will be patched up ASAP.
