Program in a Box
In an effort to keep connected to our patrons, we are offering a new concept, “Program in a Box”. These are kits that can be checked out and used at home with your children.
Story Time Boxes (Ages 2-5): Enjoy books, fingerplays, and crafts. 1 week checkout, must have an adult library card.
S.T.E.A.M. Boxes (Ages 5-13): Hands on learning with gadgets, instruments, and more. 2 week checkout, youth and adult library cards accepted.
You will find cards in the children’s room that explain what is in the kit. After making your choice, take the card to the front desk and they will retrieve the kit. These kits must be returned to an Auburndale Library staff member, and cannot be sent or dropped off to another library.
Your child can listen to a short story read by one of our librarians on the phone by dialing 863-965-5550. Stories are changed weekly.
Florida Electronic Library: FEL provides over 190 million articles, e-books, videos, and other electronic resources to the citizens of Florida. Find help with homework, reports, job searches and more!
Our friendly and helpful staff is here to assist library patrons with any request. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We have several electronic resources and services you may choose from for home or library use. Our Card Catalog is available 24 hours a day. Anyone who lives within Polk County or one of our reciprocating counties can get a library card for free. To obtain a library card, we need photo ID and if the address on the ID is not correct, proof of Polk County residence. This can be a pay stub, piece of mail, water/electrical bill, or car registration. If you have any questions about getting a card, please feel free to call us. The Auburndale Public Library is a member of the Polk County Library Cooperative. Books are available for borrowing upon request from any of the several other Libraries through the Polk County Library Cooperative. We look forward to helping you enjoy your library experience.
