The Aurora Public Library is recognized as one of Colorado's most active and cost-efficient library systems. In addition to visiting any of seven library branches, the public can access Odyssey, the library's online catalog. Odyssey contains all library materials available for loan, including books, government documents, video tapes, databases, audio cassettes, CDs and DVDs.
The library strives to provide the best services, programs and materials collections at a minimal cost to tax paying residents. Library cards are available to Aurora residents free of charge from any Aurora Library branch.
The Aurora Public Library was first established in 1929 as a single-room library in a house at 1516 Dallas Street. The library now offers seven locations to serve Aurora's residents.
