In 2004, the Aurora Public Library District launched its “Talk About Aurora History” series under the late Director Mary Alice Horton. Talk About Aurora History is a roundtable discussion held at the District’s Local History Library @ The Depot. For the last fifteen years, Roy Lambert, local history librarian, has been the one who prepares and conducts each talk. Various topics have been discussed, including churches, doctors, schools, ferries, businesses, wars, caves, and the Underground Railroad. This is an interesting event for those who are local history buffs and is also helpful to those new to the community searching for details of their new home town. The 2019 program on May 28 will be a milestone for Mr. Lambert. On this date, he will present his 100th program. The Talk About Aurora History series has been extraordinarily successful through the years due to Mr. Lambert’s knowledge of his home town.
You are cordially invited to our 100th celebration of Talk About Aurora History. The celebration will be Tuesday, May 28th at 6:00 PM. The Library is relocating this Talk to The Aurora Lions Club Building due to the number of guests expected. Refreshments will be provided. Roy’s topic this month will be “Lower Second Street: The Tim Miller Building Renovation“. Please come early to ensure a good seat! Parking is located behind the Lions’ building. See you there.
Continued success, Roy!
