Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Experience the magic of Christmas with this new musical from the Virginia Repertory Theatre! This play is free for all community members, and three performances makes it possible to fit this in with all the wonderful Miracle on Main events in downtown Aurora. Thanks to St. John’s Lutheran School for letting the Aurora Public Library District use their building!


Celebrate with a Cookie!

Why not start off your holiday season with a stop by one of our library branches on Saturday, December 7th? Both the Aurora Public Library and the Dillsboro Public Library will have Christmas cookies to ice and sprinkle, and Peggy will be sharing some of our newest Christmas picture books. (One book is from a favorite tri-state children’s author.) The stories will be at 10:30 am at the Aurora Branch and at 11:30 am at the Dillsboro Branch. Cookies will be waiting for you between 10:30 am and 1 pm. The towns of Aurora and Dillsboro will have lots of “holiday happenings” that day, so you’ll be able to put cookies and books on your list of fun things to do!

Happy holidays from the staff at the Library!

Kick-off the Holiday Season with Books and Cookies!

Saturday, December 3rd, will be the beginning of a month of very special activities at the Aurora Public Library District. Community members of all ages are invited to attend our annual Christmas Books and Cookies Program. At the Aurora Public Library, Peggy will be sharing Christmas picture books at 10 AM. Following the stories, cookies will be available for decorating until 2 PM. The same activities will be available at the Dillsboro Public Library, but beginning at 10:30 AM and ending at 1:30 PM. A  holiday craft will also be available at both locations. You can complete the craft at the library or take it with you to make at home.
