Pink_Out_5.17.18

We carry on by participating in an exciting community event! Join us Thursday, May 17, from 6-7:30 p.m. for the Pink Out Pink Lemonade Social on the Historic Side of the Main Library Lawn.

Main Library Restoration Update

As the Main Library is being restored, some of our programming that would regularly take place there have been moved to other locations for the time being. One of these activities, Kids in the Garden and Kitchen, is a program we will be continuing into the summer at the Teen Library Tuesdays from 4-5:30 p.m. The program introduces teens to gardening fruits and vegetables, and we use some of the food we grow to make delicious dishes and learn basic cooking skills. Graciously, the Auburn Elks Lodge #1987 are donating their Anniversary Grant to this program to provide new supplies, equipment, and fresh foods for our participants. Thank you to the Elks for their generosity! Wondering how you can help? Visit eckhartstrong.org for more information.
