Calling all Teens! The Library needs your help in deciding programs and activities that the library should plan for high school and middle school students. Though we love programs that connect to books, we are looking for all ideas! Crafts? Gaming? Stranger Things Escape room? Movie night? We have a lot of ideas but we want to select the best for your age group!
Join us Tuesday, July 19 at 6 PM. We will provide the pizza and pop, you bring the ideas!
Please join the Aurora Public Library District in our StoryWalk® event between July 10 and July 24, 2022! Take a walk at your leisure along Second Street in Aurora or around the Dillsboro Community Park in Dillsboro. As you walk, you will encounter the pages of a picture book to read and questions to discuss. Complete the story and scan a QR code with your smartphone or tablet to register for entries in the prize drawings for our Reading Moves You summer reading program. Registration for summer reading is NOT required to earn prize entries! Prizes will be drawn during the Summer Reading Sled Dog Finale on July 28, 2022.
The Aurora StoryWalk® will start outside the Aurora Public Library lower-level entrance and feature the book The Little Engine that Could, written by Watty Piper and reimagined by Dan Santat. The Dillsboro StoryWalk® will begin by the soccer pavilion playground at Dillsboro Community Park and feature the book The Littlest Airplane, written by Brooke Hartman and illustrated by John Joseph.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
We want to celebrate YOU and all your reading this summer with a humongous summer party with SLED DOGS! Cool down with a snow cone from the Kona Ice truck and meet Karen Land and one of her sled dogs! Karen and her dogs have raced in sled races across the country, including racing in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska! Ask Karen your questions, snuggle a very cute doggo, and slurp up a snow cone or two! You deserve it for being a reader extraordinaire this summer! Summer Reading Program Prizes will be announced and some other door prizes will be given away!
Karen and her sled dog will visit on July 28th, coming to the Dillsboro Public Library at 11 am and stopping by the Aurora Public Library at 6 pm. Make sure to bring all your friends and family! See you there!
