In 1816 a state was created, now 200 years later the city of Aurora is celebrating it’s creation. In honor to this day, the Aurora Public Library Districts are holding a drawing for the book: Indiana at 200: A Celebration of the Hoosier State.
Indiana at 200: A Celebration of the Hoosier State is a patchwork quilt of images, prose and poetry commemorating our bicentennial. Incorporating a wide variety of Hoosier voices individual, yet bound together by a common Hoosier heritage this book reflects the thoughts of business and community leaders, artists, athletes, writers, farmers, religious leaders, children and poets. These voices, along with many of the more than 6,000 photos submitted by amateur and professional photographers throughout the state, present a picture of who we are as Hoosiers, as well as our dreams and aspirations.
The drawing boxes will be located at the Local History Library, the Dillsboro Library and the Aurora Library at the desks with the raffle tickets next to them. The drawing will take place September 17, 2016.
