The Auburn Public Library provides recreational reading service to infants through young adults, aged birth to 17 years, as well as the research needs of students from kindergarten through high school. We also serve caregivers, teachers, and members of the general public interested in children's and young adult literature. Weekly programs are presented for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, accompanied by caregivers. Special programming for preschoolers through high school students is presented each month as well.
Preschoolers—2nd grade children and their caregivers are invited to join us for a brand new storytime on Saturday mornings that is all about STEM.

The Thanksgiving leftovers are gone, and holiday decorations are springing up—it must be time to write to Santa! Join us on Thursday, December 1 for some writing fun as kids learn how to structure a traditional letter. Families will enjoy festive stationery, markers, cookies, cider, and a little festive music as kids write to Santa their holiday wishes. Parents, please join in the fun so that even the youngest new writers can clearly express themselves, and the librarians can get clear addresses for Santa and his elves!
