Help Along the Way

 Want to take a GED practice exam? What are your career goals? Feeling overwhelmed by the job search experience? Learning Express Library is here to help!  

 Learning Express Library is a database available through the Harris County Public Library Homepage under the Education & Libraries heading. If you are away from the library, you need to enter your library card number to access the information. Once inside, you can easily create a User Name and Password.

The Aldine library has many coffee table books available for checkout.
