  • Auburn Public Library is the public library of Auburn, Maine. It is located at 49 Spring Street. The library's main building was built in 1903 with a donation from Andrew Carnegie, and the building was designed by architect William R. Miller in a Renaissance style. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. State Representative and one time Mayor of Auburn George C. Wing Jr. was President of the Auburn Public Library's Board of Trustees from 1939-51. The library building was expanded in 1956 and again in 2006 to accommodate a growing user community and additional services. The current library is twice the size of the original 1904 building. Care was taken during the 2006 expansion to stay true to the original architecture of the building, earning the library a Statewide Historic Preservation Honor Award from Maine Preservation in 2007. In the fall of 2012, the library opened a Media Lab that provides access to computers, cameras, scanners, and other equipment for creating digital media such as video, photographs, and music. An independently-owned cafe operates on the ground floor of the library.
