The Auburn Public Library Children’s Department is a place for kids to learn, grow, and explore. Our collection offers books, audiobooks, DVDs, Playaways, Wonderbooks, and online resources to the youth of our community, infants to age 12, and their parents/caregivers.
This May participate in the 2023 Lewiston/Auburn Community Read by reading Maxi's Secret by Lynn Plourde. There are free copies available in the Children's Room (while supplies last). For this month we are hosting programs related to the themes found in the community read book. Author Lynn Plourde will be visiting APL on May 20th at 2:00 PM to do an author talk about her book. Hope to see you there!
Be sure to take a look at our calendar for details on all programs being offered this month.
