Application to Exhibit at the Library

Aurora Public Library makes public exhibit and display space available at its Santori, Eola Road, and West Branch locations in support of the library’s role as the place where Aurora comes together to discover, create, connect, and succeed. The library accepts and considers proposals for temporary exhibits and displays on an ongoing basis. The library neither advocates for nor endorses the viewpoints of exhibits or exhibitors.

If you are interested in exhibiting at Aurora Public Library, please submit this application, along with the specified supplementary materials, to Michaela Haberkern, Executive Director, at or by mail to 101 S. River, Aurora, IL 60506. The Exhibit Review Team meets monthly and considers applications in the order they are received. Thank you for your interest!

You may also download an application and submit it.

Most exhibits are displayed for one calendar month. Is there a particular time of year you’d like to display your material?
