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!
Anyone ages 13-19 is welcome to attend! Dressing up is highly encouraged, but not required.
We’ll be showing off our costumes for the spookiest season of the year at the Aurora Public Library on Thursday, October 26th at 6 pm! We’ll have light refreshments available.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Oh no… you lit the black candle! You know what that means! The Sanderson Sisters are coming to the Aurora Train Depot!

FREE snacks and drinks will be provided. Anyone ages 13-19 are welcome to attend!
We’ll watch the Sanderson Sisters return on Thursday, October 12th at 6 pm at the Local History Library at the Depot. Wear your spookiest attire if you feel so obligated!

My disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house and have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next-door neighbors. I look out the window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean, and wearing all black—black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change—starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
Everyone ages 13-19 is welcome to attend! We can’t wait to see you there!
