The Aurora Schools Foundation created a new collegiate style reading/small meeting area with more comfortable and inviting furniture inside the Aurora High School library. All furniture was purchased and in place fall of 2016. This was part of a greater effort to encourage increased usage of the library in general. The grant amount was for $2,837 which included 8 heavy duty arm chairs, 4 end tables with book and magazine racks, and a small coffee table. The firm providing this furniture specializes in heavy usage, durable, and discounted school furniture. The Student Council is also expected to provide some funding.
