Imagine Your Story with this year’s Summer Reading Clubs!

Summer Reading Club is going on now and runs from Monday, June 1 – Saturday, August 15. This year, all of our clubs are online. There are clubs for babies (0-2 years), children (age 3 – 2nd grade & 3rd grade – 6th grade), teen, and adults.

Signing up is simple: visit our Summer Reading Club site and create an account. As you read books this summer enter them in your reading log. The more books you read the more points you earn which gets you entries for wonderful prizes.

Happy reading and enjoy your summer!

With the library being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we know that many residents may want to use library resources from home, but can’t because they may not have a library card. If you don’t already have a library card, now you can get one easily thanks to our new virtual card service!

Virtual cards will allow temporary access to some of our most popular online eResources, including OverDrive, Freegal, RBdigital magazines and eAudiobooks, and databases.

When the library reopens stop by the circulation desk of any Warren Public Library location and fill out an application for a permanent library card that will allow access to other eResources like Hoopla as well as physical library items.

Sign up here for a virtual library card! For more information, visit our “Apply For A Library Card” page.
