September 2023

The Aurora Public Library District believes the safety of our customers and staff is the number one priority. We worked with the Aurora Police Department, evacuated our buildings and followed their recommendations to ensure a safe environment for everyone. Although we’re thankful no threats were located after a physical search of each location, we recognize they have a big impact on our community and staff. Several other local libraries in Illinois have also been affected by bomb threats in recent weeks. We hope that this will be over soon and will continue to work closely with our local police. We want to thank the Aurora community for your patience, understanding and support as we continue to navigate these challenging times together. We look forward to welcoming you to the Library.  
El Distrito de Bibliotecas Públicas de Aurora cree que la seguridad de nuestros clientes y personal es la prioridad número uno. Durante las amenazas recientes, trabajamos con el Departamento de Policía de Aurora, evacuamos nuestros edificios y seguimos sus recomendaciones para garantizar un ambiente seguro para todos. Aunque estamos agradecidos de que no se hayan localizado amenazas después de una búsqueda física en cada sucursal, reconocemos que tienen un gran impacto en nuestra comunidad y nuestro personal. Varias otras bibliotecas de Illinois también se han visto afectadas por amenazas de bomba en las últimas semanas. Esperamos que esto termine pronto y continuaremos trabajando estrechamente con las autoridades locales, estatales y federales. Queremos agradecer a la comunidad de Aurora por su paciencia, comprensión y apoyo mientras continuamos navegando juntos por estos tiempos difíciles. Esperamos darle la bienvenida a la Biblioteca.
