In honor of our 5th year of operations at the ACL, the Newton Tab ran a profile about the library this past week. We love sharing our story with folks around town.

You’ll see some familiar faces!
Our beloved Saturday Knit-A-Long Club makes its triumphant seasonal return this week. The club meets on the second and fourth Saturday of the month…

Anyone who enjoysknitting or would like to learn how to knit is welcome to come. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Start planning those winter knitting projects!
Our garden looks lovely! Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who have been stewards of the grounds this summer.

Looking for a neighborly community-based volunteer activity this fall? We’d love to bolster our Auburndale Community Library volunteer ranks. Here’s how it works:you sign up for a shift when it’s convenient for you (maybe once or twice a month) and you help keep our little library going strong! Contact email@example.com for the link for volunteer signups and we’ll train you on the job–it’s an easy peasy gig.
Mark your calendars for the Mayor’s Summer Reading Challenge Wrap Up and celebrate your reading with an ice cream treat plus other fun surprises. Saturday, September 6 from 2 – 4 pm at the Newton Free Library.
It’s story time again at the ACL, starting Tuesday Sept 2nd at 10:30. Everyone is welcome! While the big kids are at school, we’ll be reading (and singing) Pete the Cat — The Wheels on the Bus, making our own school buses, singing the ABC song and more, and reading lots of other fun books. (A reporter from the Newton Tab is planning to join us for the fun, so feel free to wear your best back to school outfits–adults and kids alike!)
Come join us, bring your friends, and make some new ones at the ACL story time!
