Outreach Services for Homebound
The Warren Public Library has begun delivery of library materials to seniors and people who live with disabilities.  Warren residents who wish to participate in this new service can call the Civic Center Library at 586.751.0770 and ask for Julianne in Outreach Services.  Large and standard print books, audiobooks, DVDs, and magazines are some of the available items.  Residents can request specific titles, or librarians can select items based on an individual's interests.  Items will be checked out for four weeks, delivered to the resident's home, and picked up at the end of the check-out period.

 
DIA Inside|Out
The Detroit Institute of Arts has installed reproductions of classic paintings in 10 locations around the City of Warren.  From now through late November, residents of Warren are able to enjoy a piece of the DIA outside in their own community.  To celebrate, the Warren Public Library has created a puzzle for patrons to solve.  Visit each site, read the description of the art, answer the questions on the puzzle sheet, and then unscramble the letters to reveal a secret phrase.  When you are done, turn in the completed puzzle sheet to any Warren Library location and you will be entered in a drawing to win an Amazon gift card.  Click here for a map of art locations.  Puzzle sheets can be downloaded here and are also available at all Warren Library locations.
 
Telescopes Available for Checkout

As a NASA@ My Library partner, the Warren Public Library received four circulating telescopes through grant funding and a generous donation from the Grosse Pointe Public Library.  In partnership with the Warren Astronomical Society, the libraries will offer telescope events throughout the year, as well as the opportunity to check out the telescope and use it to view the night sky at home.  Each Warren Public Library branch has a telescope for Warren residents to check out with a valid library card.  A telescope may be checked out to Warren residents ages 18 years or older for 7 days with no renewals.  Each household can check out a telescope once every thirty days.  Visit any Warren Public Library branch for more information.

The Library Telescope program is a national initiative that began in 2008 to give greater access to telescopes and to check them out at public libraries, just as books are checked out.

 
 

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Warren Public Library's "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" program encourages families to read 1000 books with their children before they begin kindergarten.  Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read.  Reading has been associated as an early indicator of academic success.  Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5 to 6.  Before then parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years.  The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is a simple and very manageable endeavor.  If you read 3 books every night for one year, you will have read 1095 books.  Parents can stop by any Warren Public Library branch to receive a packet of information to keep track of the books that they read to their child.  Participants will earn special incentives along the way as they work towards the goal of 1000 books, such as a tote bag, free book, and stickers.  Children who complete the program will receive an award certificate and get to add their name to the "Wall of Readers".

 
Laptop Computers Available for Checkout









***UPDATE***  Coming Soon...all Warren Public Library branches will have laptop computers available for checkout.
The Busch and Burnette Branch Libraries have laptop computers that can be checked out by Warren residents FREE OF CHARGE
.  Each laptop comes with a mobile hotspot to provide free Internet access and has Microsoft Office Suite and Zoom app installed.  Laptops may be checked out to Warren residents ages 18 years or older for 7 days with one automatic renewal.  A valid Warren library card that was created at least 3 full months prior to checkout and current identification such as a driver's license, passport, or military photo ID are required at checkout.  This project is funded (in part) with a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Library of Michigan.

 


 
Mobile Hotspots Available for Checkout
Wi-Fi Mobile Hotspots are available for checkout at ALL Warren Public Library branches FREE OF CHARGE.  With this easy to use device, you can connect your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled device and have Internet connectivity wherever you are.  Mobile Hotspots may be checked out to Warren residents ages 18 years or older for 7 days with one automatic renewal.  A valid Warren library card and current identification such as a driver's license or Michigan state i.d. are required at checkout.  Stop by one of our libraries today and ask about this exciting service.
