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.
The September 2015 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. All movies are free of charge and do not require pre-registration.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
The Warren Public joins libraries across the nation to make sure that every child has the most important school supply of all, a free library card. It has been estimated that two thirds of our most vulnerable citizens, children living in poverty, have no books at home and the number of families in poverty is on the rise. Children of all ages who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. The Warren Public Library realizes the impact of reading in the home and encourages community members to apply for a library card today.
Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where customers can collaborate using new technologies, attend a variety of programs for various ages, or just relax with peers. The Warren Public Library has numerous resources available to anyone who has a library card. Students and adults can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable staff as well as access the library catalog remotely. On-line resources such as e-books and audiobooks as well as online databases that can be accessed in person or online including NoveList Plus, NoveList K-8 Plus, AtoZ databases, Search Jobs, Businesses or Mailing Lists, Morningstar Investment Research Center, and more are all available free with a library card.. Visit the Warren Public Library’s webpage (www.warrenlibrary.org) to view complete lists of materials (books, dvds, audiobooks, digital items), activities and services (reference and interlibrary loan) that are available to patrons of all ages.
Getting a library card is easy. Bring a photo ID with your current address (if your photo ID does NOT show your current address,also bring along a piece of mail that does show your current address) that confirms you are a Warren County resident, complete a registration card, and instantly you will be able to check out items from the library’s collections. Your brand new free library card that can be used at any of the five public libraries in Warren County will be mailed to your home.
For more information on how to sign up for a free library card, visit the Warren Public Library in person or call the library at 723-4650.
