The Auburn Public Library and the Stanton Bird Club are partnering to celebrate the International Year of the Bird with a number of informational and fun programs. This is a special partnership in that the Stanton Bird Club is also beginning its centennial celebration!
On April 23rd veteran bird watcher Tom Hayward will present a program at 6:00 p.m. entitled “The Birds Are Coming!” a look at what birds are returning to Maine this time of year and ways to make them feel welcome.
On May 5th, volunteers from the Stanton Bird Club will host a program for 6- to 12-year olds, “Bird’s Eye View.” There will be fun hands-on activities to learn all about birds – nests, pecking for food, and more. Programs will continue throughout the Summer and Fall, including “lunch and learns,” bird watching, and author visits.
The library will be closed for Presidents’ Day.
The Library will be closed Monday January 15 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
The library will close early, at 1PM, on December 30 for New Year’s Day, and remain closed on Monday January 1st. We will reopen Tuesday January 2nd at 9AM.

“Family Code Night” is a whole-family event at which kids grades K-5 and their parents do their first hour of computer programming – together! At this special evening of learning and fun, you’ll play in parent-child teams to complete fun Code.org puzzles and challenges at your own pace, and learn core concepts in coding in this very first hour. Afterwards, you’ll go home with a special “Code On at Home” guide to continue coding puzzles, learning and fun at home. No coding experience needed, bring one device for each two attendees. The library has a limited supply of laptops but it is best if you can bring your own. This is a great experience to share with your kids! Please register by calling 333-6640 ext.3 or register online at www.auburnpubliclibrary.org
December 5 at 12:30PM.
