"Chambers Plaza Library provides a safe learning space for students, parents and community members," said Midori Clark, director of Library and Cultural Services. "This seventh library branch contributes to our purpose of improving lives with learning opportunities for the Aurora community; this branch will make library services accessible to neighboring schools, as well as the culturally diverse communities in this northeast side of the city."

APL announced it is ending fines for overdue items at all of its library branches. The new fine policy went into effect Jan. 3.
