The Rix Jennings murals, which chronologically tell the story of Aurora’s history, are on exhibit in the main corridor outside the town offices at the Municipal Center.

Celebrating 60 Years of Our Library Building

On April 20, 1964, the doors to the current Aurora Town Public Library building opened to the public. The library had outgrown its previous home, a house that had stood on the site since the 1830s, and the Aurora Town Board agreed that a new, more modern building was necessary. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of our community’s library building, the Aurora Town Historian's Office has gathered photographs and newspaper articles from its archives.

This and other historical exhibits may be viewed during regular Municipal Center hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
