Ready for a paw-some summer? Check out Aurora Public Library’s Summer of Imagination! 

Summer of Imagination, APL's annual summer reading program, launches June 1! This year’s program, Tails & Tales, is all about animals – cats, dogs, bears, monkeys, elephants – any animal you can think of from around the world (and maybe from other worlds)! There is a program for every age, babies through adults, and all ages win prizes for reading this summer. 

Register at your local Aurora Public Library or visit to sign up starting June 1. Visit the Summer of Imagination website for book recommendations, programs, fun activities and ideas for summer and more too!

In addition to the reading program, APL is hosting programs to help make the dog days of summer cooler! With the help of our friends at Aurora Animal Shelter and the Parks, Recreation and Open Space’s Naturalist Team, APL will be hosting virtual programs about animals – domestic and wild – as well as fun contests to get your imagination running wild this summer!
