Spanish YA Books Have Moved!

Over the last few months the Aldine Branch Library has been fortunate enough to have its Spanish YA collection as much as it has.

Aldine Teens Get the Movie Bug

Teens Gathering to Shoot a SceneAre these teens goofing around or are they working hard? Why can't it be both? The teens at the Aldine Branch Library are having a good time while working on a contest called, Why I Need My Library, sponsored by the American Library Association. The organization encourages teens to create original videos on why they think libraries are needed now more than ever.

Shooting has wrapped and the kids are now hard at work on post production. Be on the lookout for the final product in the coming weeks.
