Aurora Public Library
After the Ohio River Flood, the public library in Aurora—along with libraries in Jeffersonville, Lawrenceville, and New Albany—were furnished with materials and labor to get facilities back in “good condition.” These were provided by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1937.
