Between the Lines: Adult Book Discussion

Between The Lines is the name for the Aurora Public Library District’s book discussion groups. BTL is a relaxed and friendly gathering of people who enjoy sharing comments, ideas and questions about a common book they have read. The group moderator engages the members in discussion while sharing background information about the author, story, time period and locale.

Since experience over the years has shown that the best discussions take place in smaller, more intimate groups – we limit active membership to 20. Realizing that not every member can attend every meeting, this creates an ideal discussion size.

Joining a book club may not change your life, but it will probably change the way you think about the books you read and the characters that inhabit them. Some of the books selected may not be what you would choose yourself to read, but that’s the beauty of a book club; it takes you outside your comfort zone introducing you to new authors and genres. You may even discover that your perspective on people and places in the world has been enhanced with new understanding. And you most certainly will meet new friends at the meeting.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power?

The Aurora Public Library District’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! Any child ages birth to five years can participate.

One thousand books may seem like a lot, but if you read just one book a night, you’ll meet your goal in less than 3 years. If you read three books a night, you could reach your goal in just one year!

Sign up here and then stop by one of our library buildings to get a free book bag and a Reading Log.
