If you are a reader and like to talk about the books you've read, you'll enjoy the Library's book discussions. The Adult Book Discussion Group normally meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 P.M. in the Jefferson Room. The Library tries to have sufficient copies of the books chosen available for anyone who needs to borrow one. View the 2014 selections.
The May 2014 selection is:
Set aside Monday evenings for a visit to the library and a free evening's entertainment in the Slater Room of the Warren Public Library, eating popcorn, and watching a movie on the large screen television set. Monday Night Movies, a program for adult audiences (some of the movies may have a PG rating - teens with parental permission are welcome to attend) happens every Monday at 5:30 p.m. Check the library calendar on the library's home page to see the title of the movie. The Library's movie license does not permit advertising the titles of the movies outside the Library, but additional information about the films is available in the Library or by calling 723-4650.
All movies are free of charge and do not require pre-registration.
The Warren Public Library is offering an opportunity for writers to receive feedback and support in their writing. This group is a non-instructor led opportunity for individuals to spend time writing in the company of fellow authors and sharing and critiquing their work and the works of others. The group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month in the Jefferson Room in the basement of the Library. The format for the group will be as follows: each individual will spend from 6-7 p.m. writing; the 7-8 p.m. time slot will be spent sharing writing and seeking support and assistance from their fellow writers. New volunteers moderators will be selected from within the group each month. This group is open to teens and adult and new attendees will always be welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a visual or writing prompt to each meeting as well as samples of their writing.
