The Aurora Public Library Foundation is dedicated to providing educational and skill building technology, employment and career development programming and tools, delivering options for knowledge, information and ideas about making and creating content, enriching literacy and humanities programming and ensuring emerging technologies are available. The Aurora Public Library Foundation is also devoted to helping those most at risk in our community with tools and resources to better their lives.

The Foundation is overseen by a volunteer board of directors who dedicate their time, talent and treasure to build upon the library’s mission to support lifelong learning and access to information, knowledge and ideas.
