Exhibits, Workshops & Lectures


Our changing exhibits discuss local objects and events within their broader historical context. Visitors are encouraged to discover more through experiential and hands-on activities.

Our current exhibits include:

The Class of ’17
Follow the Auburn Academic High School Class of 1917 through their senior year with objects and images from the library’s historical collections. Explore the pop culture of the time by listening to recordings of the student’s favorite songs and by viewing one of the silent films shown in Auburn that year. Discover the impact of WWI on the class and watch an interview with a class member who was active in the Civil Rights movement.

Double Vision: Exploring 3D images
Explore the history and science of 3D images with this hands-on exhibit. View stereoscope images from the 1800’s, Kodak stereoslides and Viewmaster reels from the 1900’s, and video apps with today’s Google cardboard.


Workshops on genealogical and house history research and image and document preservation are offered throughout the year.


Lectures by local historians will be offered throughout the year and open to the community. Stay up-to-date with our events and classes by subscribing to our newsletter or Facebook.
