    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.

    Library of Congress Writing Contest

    Books have the power to shape us by changing the ways we think and feel. Think about a book that made a difference in your life. It could be your favorite book, one that you read at school or as part of this year’s summer reading program. How did it make you feel? Did it change the way you see yourself, your family or the world? Choose one book–it can be fiction or nonfiction–and write a short essay about how it had a personal impact on your life.

    Write a one-page essay.

    Use examples from the book to make your points.

    Your essay will be judged on content, structure and creativity.

    Your essay may be typed or handwritten.

    Submit your essay in-person by Monday, August 11, 2014 to your participating neighborhood public library using the required entry coupon.  Click here for entry coupon and for more information.



    Writer's Group
    Jefferson Room

    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.
