Aurora, CO -- Freedom can have many meanings for different people, and this year's Winter Reading Program is about embracing each one. Freedom, whether it is in the arts or sciences, the natural world or constructed society, personal liberty or individual perspective, is a powerful force in the human experience and can be an interesting discussion piece.
Aurora Public Library's Winter Reading Program kicks-off with the theme "Embracing Freedom." The Winter Reading Program is also the first program of the city of Aurora's 2014 Power of One program with the same theme. To participate, sign up at your local Aurora Public Library branch between Jan. 18 and March 1. Then read three books in those six weeks and win a prize. Prizes include a book light, ear buds and "boogie bots," toy robots that dance.
Each Aurora Public Library branch will feature a special display for the program with recommended titles of books, DVDs and CDs for all ages all about embracing freedom.
Kick-off parties at local branches:
Central, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mission Viejo libraries are hosting kick-off parties for the Winter Reading Program, including storytimes, crafts and snacks for the whole family, Jan. 18.
