Madcap.PuppetsOn your mark, get set….it’s time Summer Reading Club! To help start Summer Reading at 2 pm in the Warren City Hall Atrium we will be having a performance by Madcap Puppets! Additionally, there will be crafts and Summer Reading sign-up all day long in the library. You can also stop by any branch to get registered for Summer Reading Club!

Like last year, the  Summer Reading Club for kids, teens, and adults will be online. You will get points for tracking your reading, attending programs, playing games, and more! The more points you get, the more entries you earn for our prize drawings. You can register at our Summer Reading website beginning May 21. Don’t have a computer? No worries – library staff at any Warren Library branch will be happy to get you registered and log your reading.

We look forward to a great summer of fun, games, programs, and, most important – reading!

Food for Thought Logo - 2014Next time you stop by the library to get something to read, consider bringing something along to help those in need as well.

From March 21-April 29, all Warren Public Library locations will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items as part of the Food for Thought campaign, a regional effort between local libraries and Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan. Food banks see a decrease in inventory during the winter and early spring, so donations are needed to help  feed hungry children, seniors, and families in your community!

To take part, bring in nonperishable food items and place them in donation boxes inside the library. For more information, call 586.574.4564.
