Pages of the Past: Aurora's Library System
Libraries serve as centers for learning and education and foster community engagement and social connections. The city of Aurora’s library system has a storied past that mirrors the city’s growth and changing demographics. Learn how the Aurora Public Library developed from a one-room library in Sarah Wood’s home in North Aurora to a thriving seven-library system serving the third-largest city in the state of Colorado. This exhibit showcases historic photography from the museum and library archives, profiles of prominent librarians throughout the years and a reading corner with a little library inspired by the museum’s 1913 Trolley Trailer No. 610.
Have you ever wondered when and why the Aurora Reservoir was built? Are you curious about the history behind your favorite city park?
