The Aurora Public Library District is pleased to announce that Blu-Ray discs are now available for check-out at the Aurora and Dillsboro Public Libraries. These discs can be found near the New DVDs displays at each branch. Our collection will be slowly and steadily growing in the coming months. The same check-out limits and fines for regular DVDs apply to Blu-Rays. Blu-Rays may be checked out for one week and cannot be renewed. You can only check out two Blu-Rays at a time, but this does not limit the number of regular DVDs you may check out, meaning you can have two Blu-Rays and two DVDs out at the same time on one card. If you have any further questions about our new Blu-Ray collection, please give us a call at 812-926-0646 or visit the Aurora or Dillsboro Public Library. Come check out our selection today!
May the 4th is Star Wars day!
Say “May the 4th Be With You” out loud and you’ll hear the pun that Star Wars fans worldwide have turned into a rallying cry to proclaim their love of the saga. 5/4/2018 is the worldwide day to say “May the Force be with you” to all, and celebrate the beloved Star Wars story that binds our galaxy together. The Aurora Public Library District has amassed a great many Star Wars movies and books in both fiction and non-fiction. You’ll find plenty on the shelves for your youngest Jedi to your Jedi master.
Here are the top five lines from the Star Wars saga according to The Guardian:
5. “It’s a trap!”
Admiral Ackbar works out the obvious during the final space battle, in Return of the Jedi.
4. “I have a bad feeling about this!”
Spoken in all of the first seven Star Wars movies, and almost in Rogue One, in which K-2SO is interrupted just before he can utter the line.
3. “Do or do not. There is no try.”
Yoda encourages Luke to stop messing about and make with the telekineses already, in The Empire Strikes Back.
2. “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”
Leia’s hologramatic introduction, in Star Wars.
1. “No, I am your father!”
The greatest twist in Hollywood history. Vader reveals to Luke that his daddy is a terrifying, shiny black death-cyborg, in The Empire Strikes Back.
So hop in your x-wing fighter,TIE fighter, or even your old sandspeeder and come visit the library for everything STAR WARS.
