More than $20,000 raised at library event

AURORA – The Aurora Public Library Foundation’s annual fundraising reception and auction, held on Oct. 28 at the Eola Road Branch Library on Aurora’s far east side, netted $20,500 that will benefit the children’s areas of the new Main Aurora Public Library as well as the branch libraries.

The event, chaired by Brigit Reuland with co-chair Judy Dawson, had a magical theme and featured a strolling magician who also presented a guillotine act. Guest auctioneers for the evening were Arlene Hawks, Sherman Jenkins, Scott McCleary and James Rydland. Honorary chairs were Neal and Mary Clark Ormond. On display were posters and other magical affects from the collection of the late David Alexander.

Also displayed around the library were posters showing conceptual architectural plans and landscape design ideas for the new Main Library, as well as posters of the winning essays of three Aurora Public Library patrons who shared how the library has enriched their lives.

Proceeds will benefit the children’s area of the new Main Library, to be located at the corner of River and Benton streets in downtown Aurora, as well as the children’s areas of the Eola Road and West branches. As an example of the kinds of things that could be purchased for the children’s areas, the library displayed a book bench and giant “eraser” manufactured by Big Cozy Books as well as the latest in technology for young children.
