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 April 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.

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.

Did you always want to learn how to draw but thought you couldn't? Well then, this class is for you. Learn the world wide visual vocabulary of Zentangle. The Zentangle method is easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images of structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of well being. It is an empowering and uplifting experience to learn that you can deliberately relax and intentionally direct your attention while creating beautiful works of art. Zentangle has no predetermined solution. It is abstract portable inspirational that is a non verbal language of patterns and proportions.
Zentangle was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas so others could experience the feelings of timelessness, freedom and well being and complete focus on what they are doing without no thought or worry about anything else.
In this class we use the finest tools and materials available. We use the best paper and pens to ensure your Zentangle creations will be respected and treasured works of art. Unlike other methods of relaxation and focus, you not only feel good you get a side effect of beautiful art to be appreciated, collected, chronicled and reflected upon for years to come. Everything will be provided with class fee. You will learn 4 different Zentangles in this class One extra Zentangle tile will be given to work on so you can combine the Zentangles you have learned.
Christine French is the only( CZT) Zentangle trained instructor in this area. You can find books on Zentangle but you will only learn the original Zentangles from a certified CZT.
