We Are Open!
We would love to see you.

Books are fuel.

Welcome to Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers. We’re an independent bookstore in Auburn, AL featuring a specially curated selection of books, cards, and gifts as well as custom-made drinks (complete with a coffee menu inspired by local authors). Our namesake pays homage to a family business from a time when a gas station was a filling station, a place where you knew each other, where someone came out to your car to fill up your tank, clean your windshield, and catch up a bit. At Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, you can know a friendly face, fill your brain and your belly, and maybe see a little better when you leave.

Our Response to COVID-19

Thank you for choosing Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers. We’re currently open 9am – 7pm daily and also continue to offer curbside pickup in the adjacent atrium. We’re committed to following the State of Alabama mandates and the additional City of Auburn recommendations. Our staff is wearing masks and following strict cleaning practices before the store opens, after the store closes, and throughout the day.  We require all of our customers to wear masks, and we have hand sanitizer available for use at our registers.  We hope that you’ll be reassured by our efforts, and we appreciate your ongoing support. War Eagle!
