Welcome to the Library!

Currently, we are open

  • Tuesdays 10am-12pm
  • Thursdays 6pm-8pm
  • Saturdays 10am-3pm

Occasionally, for example, during the heatwave, we were able to open for additional hours as a cool, air-conditioned space for you to escape the heat. Follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates on these impromptu openings and more.

During the visits, we are still asking for your help in wearing a mask in order to provide a safe and welcoming space for all patrons including families with children who may not be vaccinated yet and others who may be immunocompromised. Thank you for understanding.

Don’t worry if you are not ready to come visit the ACL in person yet. We will continue to offer our ACL To-Go services with Tuesday and Saturday morning pick up times between 10am-12pm, as well as free bicycle delivery to Auburndale, West Newton and Newton Lower Falls. Bicycle delivery is available through July 13.

Please continue to make your book requests by using our online form. Our volunteers will contact you when your items are ready for pick up. 

The Auburndale Community Library is a non-profit community library staffed by volunteers and funded 100% by donations. Please click here for more information about activities at our library.

Oversized items can be returned during our volunteer-staffed hours in the bin outside the front of the library. Items that can fit in our mail slot in the door on Auburn St. facing the Pike may be returned at any time at your convenience.

The ACL may be closed during inclement weather. In case of snow or ice, we advise phoning the library to double check. We generally follow the lead of the City of Newton/Newton Public Schools.

The general rule is that we’re closed on holiday Saturdays, but also for holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.  If you’re ever unsure, just give a call or check our FaceBook page.
