From the Director's Desk

As the new Library Director of the Aurora Public Library District, I want to thank you for stopping by our Library Web Page! I am excited about all the resources, services, and programs we offer to our community and will be sharing more about these on this web page in the future.

Our goal is provide you with the very best resources for all aspects of your informational needs. We also work very hard to make our Library a welcoming place, where you can find a friendly smile and courteous, helpful service each time you visit. At the same time, we know that more and more of our community members are using our resources remotely on a variety of electronic devices. If you do not know about all the electronic services we offer, feel free to stop by and have a staff member walk you through our databases and our selection of downloadable resources. As our collections continue to evolve with technology, we want to make sure that all our community members can find and access the information they need.

I believe that the Aurora Public Library District has great potential to serve as the heart of our community. Public Libraries hold a unique spot in many communities as a “third place”, a location other than work and home where community members can gather, share ideas, and have their needs met. One of the beautiful things about libraries is that all members of the community receive equal services. We do not charge Library District residents for our resources, services, or programs. The Library truly belongs to the community!

As I move forward in my new position, I welcome any feedback from community members or organizations. The Aurora Public Library District will continue to be visible in the community and will continue to work in partnership with other agencies. Feel free to contact me at 812-926-0646 or with your concerns or suggestions.

If you are not familiar with our facilities, I hope that you will make an effort to stop by and learn about everything we have to offer. I am confident you will find something to interest you and library staff members who are eager to help you.
