Santori Library

E101 - John C. Dunham Atrium

Celebrate National Library Week all month long and explore your library's history! ¡Celebra la Semana Nacional de la Biblioteca durante todo el mes y explora la historia de tu biblioteca!

Ever wonder what the old downtown library looked like when it was first built? Curious about whether the library ever loaned record albums or Super 8 movies? Find your answers in this exhibit that will be displayed at Santori Library throughout the month of April! Learn about how your library's collection, tech, and facilities have adapted over its 142 year history to meet the needs of its growing and ever-changing community. When the Carnegie library opened at Benton and Stolp Aves. in 1904, an article in the Aurora Daily News proclaimed, "Let every citizen feel that the Aurora public library is [their] own institution." While the world has changed drastically over the past century, that sentiment has remained constant. The library is your space, and we hope you feel that you belong here.

Find this exhibit at the Santori Library from Monday, April 3 through Sunday, April 30. Then, it will be on display at the Eola Road Branch in May and West Branch in July!

Questions? Visit the Local History Room on the second floor of the Santori Library, email genealogyhelp@aurorapubliclibrary.org, or call your Genealogy & Community History Librarian at 630-264-4122.

¿Alguna vez te has preguntado cómo era la antigua biblioteca del centro cuando se construyó por primera vez? ¿Tienes curiosidad por saber si la biblioteca alguna vez prestó álbumes de discos o películas en Super 8? ¡Encuentra las respuestas en esta exhibición que se exhibirá en la Biblioteca Santori durante todo el mes de abril! Conozca cómo la colección, la tecnología y las instalaciones de tu biblioteca se han adaptado a lo largo de sus 142 años de historia para satisfacer las necesidades de su comunidad en crecimiento y en constante cambio y ve algunos de los artefactos históricos de la biblioteca a lo largo del camino. Cuando la biblioteca Carnegie abrió en Benton y Stolp Aves. en 1904, un artículo en el Aurora Daily News proclamó: "Que cada ciudadano sienta que la Biblioteca Pública de Aurora es [su] propia institución". Si bien el mundo ha cambiado drásticamente durante el siglo pasado, ese sentimiento se ha mantenido constante. La biblioteca es tu espacio, y esperamos que sientas que pertenece aquí. 
  
Encuentra esta exhibición en la Biblioteca de Santori desde el lunes 3 de abril hasta el domingo 30 de abril. Después, estará en exhibición en la sucursal Eola Road en mayo y en la sucursal West en julio.
