Shriek freely and pardon the screams… the library is HAUNTED!
The Aurora Public Library is hosting a haunted house! After closing at 6 pm on Friday, October 27th, the library will be open again at 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm for some frightening fun. This walkthrough might be too scary for younger ghouls, so recommended age is 3rd grade and up.
Registration is required by 1 week before the event. To register, speak to a librarian or call 812-926-0646.
Who knows what might be lurking in the library!
Show off your costume, play some spooky trivia, and win prizes at our Halloween Costume Party! We’ll vote for the scariest, funniest, and most original costumes! Winners will receive a secret spooky surprise!
