Annual Appeal 2017

November 20, 2017

Dear Library Friend:

The Aurora Free Library continues to serve our many constituents and refine our programs, collections, public space and services. At this time of year we continue to reflect on what you have told us about the importance of our library as…

  • A way to connect to the community and provide a link that assures we are a great place to live
  • A place for interactions especially for young families—creating childhood memories around reading and family that children will have forever
  • A source of both information you need as well as information you didn’t even know existed
  • An opportunity to read and learn about people and places both real and imagined

As we continue to listen to you our customers, we continue to develop. This year brought a wonderful new service desk, enhanced book shelving for children and plans to improve our lighting and preserve our windows. We thank you for another successful school ballot proposition that brings us closer to having the majority of our operating expenses supported by voter approved funds.

This year’s annual appeal will be used for operating expenses at both the library and Morgan Opera House Committee. Gifts to the Preservation Committee will enable us to care for our beloved 118 year old historic building.

On behalf of our board and staff, I thank you for your continued support for our annual giving campaign. We look forward to working with our community to make 2018 the best year ever for the Aurora Free Library and our many customers.

Elaine Meyers, President
Aurora Free Library Board of Trustees
