Film Circuit Supports Aurora Public Library

This brings the total donations to the library to $38,500 since AFC’s inception seven years ago. Matt Maddocks, Board Chair of the library was there to receive the donation and provided the group with a quick update on what the Library will use the funds for: “The Library will use the funds for special initiatives, including the building of its DVD collection, which now includes copies of most films shown by AFC”.
