All library branches will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday Thursday, November 23rd and Friday, November 24th.
During this time, all materials you wish to return must be placed in the drop boxes on front of the Aurora Public Library on the lower level or on the front of the Dillsboro Public Library building. All library books returned during our closed period will be checked into the library according to the date we were last open, Wednesday, November 22nd.
If you would like to renew any items, you may do so by renewing them on our website by logging in with your library card and pin, or calling the library for a renewal on Wednesday, November 22nd or Saturday, November 25th during business hours. As a courtesy reminder, the library district no longer charges late fees.
If you have any questions about this closure, please call the library at 812-926-0646 or visit one of our branches during business hours.
Have a safe holiday!
Leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, scarecrows, pies, harvest, squirrels, orange, red, yellow, and brown are all things happening in our November Storytime. What did The Leaf Thief really steal? And If You Give a Moose a Muffin what does he do with it? Or why are there Too Many Pumpkins? But the true question is what did The Scarecrow do to help the crow? Activities galore surrounding this thankful month of Fall. We look forward to seeing you and your family there to learn all of the answers to the questions above. Maybe we will learn How to Catch a Turkey!
Aurora Public Library storytimes are Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 am.
Dillsboro Public Library storytimes are Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 am.
We hope the entire family can join us to kick off the Holiday season on November 26th at 12:00 p.m. at APL to watch the movie “The Muppet Christmas Carol.” See you there!
Beginning on Monday, November 2, we will have a Thanksgiving Take It, Make It Activity available at both branches! Take It, Make It activities are projects that can be done at home with materials you can pick up at the library! You can also request curbside pick up. Just call 812-926-0646 (Aurora) or 812-954-4151 (Dillsboro) and let us know how many of the activities you need for your family!
Stop by the Aurora or Dillsboro Library November 2nd through the 25th to pick up the supplies to make this tremendous turkey! All the paper pieces and the googly eyes will be provided in your packet, but you will need glue to put it all together.
If you want your turkey to be featured on our social media, send a picture to Ms. Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include if we have permission to share your picture and name on our Facebook page. Pictures must be submitted by November 30, 2020.
