Aurora Public Library February Calendar of Events

Tikkum Olam: Repairing the World, all ages

Don’t miss this fascinating art exhibit on loan to Aurora Public Library by Mizel Museum of Denver. Tikkum Olam means to “heal the world.” While the phrase is Hebrew in origin, all cultures share a vision—expressed in myth, legend and story—of what it means to set the world right. Programs and guest speakers for this exhibit will be held at the Central Library in February and March. Exhibit is free.
