Reservation Station Migration

If you have been in the Aldine Library recently, you may have noticed a rearrangement of sorts. The reservation station has moved to the opposite side of the computers. It now faces the adult fiction section. This was done to so that a new, flat screen monitor could be installed and hooked up to the reservation computer. While not yet fully installed, the flat screen monitor will soon be used to display the reservation system queue. Also, in time, the reservation station will be moved back to its original location facing the circulation desk. When the process is complete, the reservation queue will be visible on both the computer monitor and the flat screen television on the wall.

Pumpkins for the Season

Halloween is almost here. Do you have a pumpkin near? Do you want to decorate it but don't know how? Here is a book that will teach you how! In Pumpkin Decorating, Vicki Rhodes shows how decorated pumpkins don't always have to be carved, they don't necessarily have to be spooky, and they don't have to portray faces all the time. Rhodes features over 80 ideas on how to creatively carve, paint, and deck out everyone's favorite symbol of the season. While many of the projects are for Halloween, Rhodes includes Thanksgiving and other autumn themes. Check out Pumpkin Decorating at the Aldine Library today!
