The Auburn Mall announced the start of Auburn READS, a program designed to publicly promote reading through special events held at the Auburn Mall. The program is designed to inspire students and make reading fun and give back to local school libraries.

Auburn READS will have two events for partnering elementary schools.

The first event is a READS Spirit Night designed to encourage reading and support local libraries.

The event will have interactive games for students who can use their reading skills to win prizes. For every student that attends, the program donates $1 for the school’s library.

The second event is a READS Recognition Night that will celebrate the reading achievements of students at the end of the school year. The event will have a presentation of certificates by local leaders and a wall of recognition displaying the names of student readers.

Auburn READS is supported by the Auburn Mall at no cost to participating schools or families. Elementary schools looking to join Auburn READS can visit to sign up. The program is also seeking partnerships with local businesses to help grow this community reading program.
