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!
Teens are invited to join us for the first of two movie nights this summer. We’ll be watching The Hate U Give, based on the novel by the same name by Angie Thomas, on Thursday, June 20 upstairs at the Aurora Public Library starting at 5:30 p.m.
“Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.”
The movie is rated PG-13 for mature thematic elements, including some violent content, drug material, and language.
Before you watch the movie, check out the book and join the discussion with Stuck Between the Pages, the young adult book discussion group. We’re reading the book for the June discussion, which will take place on Tuesday, June 11 at 6 p.m. at the Aurora Public Library.
Making cool “stuff” is a great way to pass the time, express your creativity — and for some, even make a living. But I found a study cited by CNN that confirms another huge benefit to crafting: Mental health!
From CNN: “Crafting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression or chronic pain, experts say. It may also ease stress, increase happiness and protect the brain from damage caused by aging.”
The Aurora Public Library District is trying to do its part in helping adults and teens feel a little better with a craft program this month. We will be making a decorative mini-photo album, just right for carrying in your purse or to give as a gift. You may bring photos to put in the album that day or make an album for future use. These will be fun to decorate for any occasion.
Adults and Teens are invited to join us at Dillsboro Library on Tuesday, February 19 from 4-5:30 p.m. or Aurora Library on Thursday, February 21 from 6-7:30 p.m. to make this mini-photo album, eat some snacks and have fun. If anyone asks, you can always tell them you are going to the library for your health!
Register by visiting either library location or by calling 812-926-0646.
Calling all teens! Join us at the Aurora Public Library on Thursday, July 6 at 6 p.m. for a one-of-a-kind teen program with Bi-Okoto!

No registration is required for this program! You don’t want to miss it!
