You may have noticed some changes to our website recently. That’s because we’re in the process of a revamp! This will be an ongoing project, so it may look a little different every time you use it. While theses changes are being made, if you are having trouble finding something, always check the green menu all the way at the bottom of the page. That’s where we will be keeping all our important links (like Online Resources, Services, and Program) until the website is finished and they have permanent locations. You can also use the search bar in the top right hand corner. Just be sure to change the selection from “The Online Catalog” to “The Library.” If you have any questions or need help finding something you can always give us a call at 812-926-0646.

Check out November’s Big Library Read! This virtual book club run by Overdrive allows thousands of library patrons like you to check out the same e-book at the same time without any holds or wait lists!
This November, join thousands of other Overdrive and Libby users as we read Five Total Strangers by Natalie D. Richards together! This wild, heart-pounding thriller is sure to keep those (virtual) pages turning. So, cozy up with a new book as the weather gets colder and get reading! Use the hashtag #BigLibraryRead on social media for a chance to win Libby swag, a tablet, and signed books by the author!
If you are new to Overdrive or Libby and would like assistance in setting up your account, please contact the Aurora or Dillsboro Public Libraries or speak to a librarian. We’re here to help!
You’ve seen our Take It, Make It activities for children, but have you checked out our take home activity for adults? Every other month we have Spice Up Your Life packets available at both Aurora and Dillsboro. June’s packet includes three different kinds of chile pepper spices, recipes, and the history of the different spices! Once you pick up the packet, check out our online resource AtoZ Food America for more information about the spices and for more recipes to try! All you need is your library card number to sign into the website.
If you try one of the featured recipes, send a photo of your completed cuisine to email@example.com, and we’ll show your creation on one of the library’s social media pages.
HAVE YOU READ EVERYTHING YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR EVER WROTE? Sometimes it’s a year or even more until the next book is released. What is a reader supposed to do? Do you wander through the stacks trying to choose by the short blurb inside the jacket, or maybe by the title and the look of the cover? What about choosing something because your friend recommended it? Even though they are your “bestie”, they may read very differently than you do. Bestseller lists are no guarantee that the book will suit your tastes. The library can help; every member of the staff is trained in what is called Readers Advisory. Ask us to help you out, just be prepared to answer a few questions such as “what was the last thing you read that you really liked?” and “what was it that you liked about it?”
If you prefer to find books on your own, but wish there was a better way, the library can help with that too. On our web-page under the online resources tab you’ll find these reading resources:
NoveList is a fiction database that provides subject heading access, reviews, annotations, and much more for over 120,000 fiction titles. It also includes other content of interest to fiction readers, such as Author Read-alikes, Book Discussion Guides, BookTalks, and Feature Articles.
eSequels is a website that contains information about series. Information is provided about characters, subjects, correct reading order and more. eSequels is the place to learn everything about your favorite book series.
An easy way to track your favorite authors. Receive email alerts when the library receives a new book by authors you’ve selected. A full database of authors and their books, that the library owns, including author profiles.
Discovering books that match your interests just got easier with SelectReads. Get monthly emails reading and recommendations customized to match your interests.
To let us help you discover your next favorite author or genre, stop by or go online at www.eAPLD.org
