Could that painting, sculpture, or piece of furniture you acquired be worth a lot of money? Wouldn’t you like to find out?

Appraisers from the renowned DuMouchelles Art Gallery of Detroit will be at the Civic Center to answer that question!

We will only be able to accommodate 50 people at this event so you must buy a ticket ahead of time. There are two steps to follow:

1) Purchase a ticket for $5.00 at the Warren Civic Center Library reference desk during normal library hours during the week of October 6th. (For an extra $3.00 you may bring two items to the appraisal.)

2) Bring your item(s) and your ticket to the Warren Civic Center conference room on Saturday, October 25th at your assigned time. (You must be able to carry your items yourself. Sorry, but we will not have staff to help you.)

Please call 586.564.4564 if you have any questions or for more information.

BeerInterest in craft brewing and breweries continues to be strong in Michigan, with Michigan being ranked #5 for the most breweries, microbreweries, and brewpubs (80+) per state in the nation.  There is also plenty of interest in home brewing.  Have you ever wondered how to brew your own beer at home or how microbreweries brew beer?  Eric Stephenson of local Warren microbrewery Falling Down Beer Co. visits us to discuss these topics and answer any questions.

This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library in the Warren City Hall.  To register for this program, please call 586-574-4564. Refreshments (sorry, no beer!) will be served.
