Children’s Origami Exhibit

The Auburn Public Library Children’s Department is pleased to host a national exhibit of origami created by children. For more than three decades, OrigamiUSA has sponsored Origami by Children, an annual exhibition of outstanding origami by children from around the world.

Experience is not necessary and every interested child is welcome to participate. Most models are made from directions in origami books available in libraries, bookstores, and online. However, original creations are especially encouraged.

Every year children are invited to submit their best folded models; either their own creations or the designs of others. The finest of these are selected to become the Origami By Children exhibit for that year. The exhibit travels to the communities of the various participants where it is displayed in local schools and libraries.

Started in 1978, Origami by Children provides an inspiration for children of all ages to explore their own creative potential as well as to enjoy the creativity of other children from around the world.


The exhibit is on display in the children’ s room from 1/25/17 through 3/15/17 during library hours.
