All aboard at the Old Aurora Train Depot for a special storytime of Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Kids will cozy up with hot cocoa and a story. Of course, your most comfy jammies are encouraged, but not required. Who knows, maybe that train whistle will be coming around the corner! We hope to see all of your kids there for this magical storytime at the Depot on December 16th at 1 pm!
Chapter Chat is back with a little twist.
Each week a kid can pick up each month’s book with interactive elements that go along with the story. As you read, there are items in the book bag that have page numbers on them and when you reach that page then you will open that item.
November’s book is Escape at 10,000 Feet: DB Cooper and the Missing Money by Tom Sullivan. We will be meeting at the Dillsboro Public Library on November 21st at 3:30 pm (after school) and at the Aurora Public Library on November 29th at 3:30 pm.
CASE NO. 001: NORJAK
NOVEMBER 24, 1971
A man in his mid-forties, wearing a suit and overcoat, buys a ticket for Northwest Orient Airlines flight 305 bound for Seattle.
The man presents his demands: $200,000 in cash and four parachutes. If the demands are not met, he threatens to detonate the explosive device in his briefcase.
So begins the true story of the man known as D.B. Cooper, and the only unsolved airplane hijacking case in the United States.
Bags can be picked up at Aurora at the lower level desk and at Dillsboro.
Snacks and Drinks will be provided. Ages 7 to 12 only.

This program is open to anyone ages 13-19.
“Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.
His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.” -Scholastic
