Community Involvement

The Bigger Picture

Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers is much more than your downtown Auburn bookstore. We’re your downtown neighbor, and that means we’re committed to helping our neighborhood. We’ve come up with a variety of ways we can do that! Need to place large orders for local teachers or local businesses? Worried about how your book club is coming along? We can help with that! Making our local community an even better place is what gets us up in the morning. Well, that and coffee.


Wow, we appreciate you. We love supporting the work of schools, libraries, teachers, and educators in our community.


We can facilitate large orders of books for businesses, conferences, and other institutions.

storybook farm

There’s really nothing better than a good story. That’s why when we learned about Storybook Farm and the inspiring work they do, we knew we had to get involved. In 2021, we created a curated library for Rigsby’s Reading Room. Our booksellers hand-picked more than 400 children’s titles with Storybook Farm’s specific needs in mind. But the fun didn’t end there! We hosted storytime at their Christmas Celebration, and we are proud to be a Storybook Farm Kentucky Derby Day sponsor.

The Reading Challenge

12 months, 12 books. Our Reading Challenge dares people from all over the country to read books they never thought they would. Flexible, fun, and punctuated with prizes and a party, this is a challenge you’ll actually want to finish.
Local Authors
Writers are everywhere, even here. As important as it is to support your local bookstore, it’s just as meaningful to support your local authors. Here are a few we work with the most.
