Join the APL District and Foundation for The Magic of Literacy, Dueling Pianos and Auction Party on Saturday, December 3, at Santori Library.

Celebrate with us as we raise funds for a new Mini-Bookmobile, a Bookmobile Maintenance Fund and Literacy Packets for Aurora kids!

The annual crowd-pleasing event will feature a silent auction with scores of items that would make great holiday gifts.  The auction bidding opens online on December 1st and the physical display opens – 6:15 p.m. the evening of the event.

Every year we select individuals and organizations to honor that have made a significant impact in the Aurora community.

The Lifelong Learning Inspiration Award goes out to two worthy recipients this year:  John Savage and Jeff Butler

The Thomas J. Weisner Educational Collaboration Award goes out to the Aurora Women’s Empowerment (AWE) Foundation.

The Award Ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m.

The Foundation is proud to announce that entertainment will be provided by Ted Oliver Productions Dueling Pianos.  Back by popular demand- last year’s attendees were dancing in the aisles during this interactive performance.
