The Aurora Public Library has been the cornerstone for access to information, knowledge and ideas as well as an integral part of Aurora’s educational system for more than 130 years. Aurora now has a new downtown Main Library that is a gathering site and information mall for customers of all ages. The Aurora Public Library Foundation was established in 2001 to establish a legacy of philanthropy.

Starting with a $3 million naming donation from Dr. Gina Santori, the Aurora Public Library Foundation has been overwhelmed with the generosity of library lovers in the region.

The Foundation continues to offer everyone the chance to put his or her own name or the name of a loved one on a bookshelf or in a book. Naming opportunities also are available for items in the Juvenile Protective Association Children’s Nature Garden on the west side of The Richard and Gina Santori Public Library of Aurora.

As you peruse this site, if you have any questions, please email Lstoney@aurorapubliclibrary.org or call at 630-264-4124.
