The good news though is that we have added yet another event to The Summer Reading Program here at the Aldine Branch. Wednesday, July 28th at 1pm teens can come to the meeting room for a pizza making demonstration. Not only will you be able to play with some pizza dough, but pizza snacks will be served. We hope you can join us!

Good Stuff

Summer does not officially begin until June 21st, 2010. However, it is already plenty warm outside.

It is important to drink plenty of water during the hot summer months.

Here at the Aldine library, we have two water fountains next to our book display case. You may not have known it, but underneath these fountains, a water filter is attached. Stop by today and enjoy a sip of cool, refreshing, filtered water. It's good stuff.

Exciting Writing

On Saturday, May 29th, 2010, kids and adults enjoyed an introductory lesson on Chinese writing taught by Ms. Huai-jing Mu. The class was held at the Aldine Library in celebration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month. Ms. Mu gave a brief overview of the history of the Chinese language and demonstrated how to write common words in Chinese. Also, she translated names into Chinese for those in attendance. Each participant was given a small, colorful bag with Chinese coins as a souvenir.
