President, Kathy Turner

Kathy TurnerKathy was a “military brat” and one of six children who attended Hinkley High School and also taught at Aurora Central High School.  Returning to Aurora was a natural progression after living and teaching overseas for thirty years.  She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Truman University, a Master’s in Education from the University of Iowa and an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of Arizona.

She is impressed with the cadre of volunteers at the Friends of the Aurora Public Library and the teamwork that it takes to make The Friends run smoothly.  Volunteers each bring their own unique skills and life experiences to blend into the worthwhile organization that is in place?  She is passionate about literacy and strongly supports learning as a lifelong adventure.  Kathy LOVES to read and thoroughly enjoys the folks who donate their “treasures”, volunteer and shop at the Friends’ Book Outlet.  Chatting with familiar and new faces each week is a pleasure that she looks forward to each time she volunteers at The Book Outlet.  Come and visit our unique store!
