Tweens ages 8 to 12 are invited to join June and Heather to learn how
to finger-knit! Create a bracelet while here and we’ll send you home
with a small ball of yarn to craft other fun accessories like a necklace!
Space and supplies are limited so please call the library at 333-6640
ext. 3 to register or use our online registration form on the library’s webpage.


Wednesday’s “KIDS! DIY Tweens-Make a Bristlebot!” workshop was FUN!
Check out the link to some pictures featuring some of ZANY kids who participated
in this science-oriented, hands-on, buzzing-with-life-craft!
BristleBots had a fantastic turn-out! Fun and focused, these kids followed
Miss Heather in her kinetic-robotic-workshop which featured toothbrushes
generously donated by Center Street Dental, and other supplies provided by
the Auburn Public Library; These included a motor and watch battery per child.
Since this workshop was SO popular, please be sure to follow us on FB, our Blog,
and create a shortcut to our online calendar for future and easy reference!
Try to register early as workshops tend to fill up quickly! We’ll see you NEXT time!

Studies show that children who are typically nervous reading aloud become much more calm and confident when reading to animals. Your child may sign up for a 15 minute session to read aloud with trained therapy dog, Maggie (a sheltie). Sessions are available at 5:15, 5:30 and 5:45 p.m.

Please call the Auburn Public Library Children’s Department to reserve an appointment for your child at 207-333-6640 ext. 3.
