The Aurora Public Library Looks to Its Future

Aurora looks to future of libraries.  (Daily Herald, 12/19/2011)

Excerpt:   Audience members who participated in the roundtables listed a number of things they would like to see in the new Aurora Public Library. Among them were:

• an imagination/creative lab;

• genius bar;

• programs that reach out to all age groups;

• interconnection with school and university libraries;

• movable walls;

• physical data storage;

• soundproof performance room;

• community garden;

• roaming librarians (in the library and throughout the community);

• and SMART Boards all over.

One group said its members’ goal for a future Aurora Public Library is that it be the “guardian of the community memory.”
