Wednesdays, September 14 – November 16, 2022, 5:00 – 6:00 pm, Civic Center Library

Children of all ages can read to a certified therapy dog. The PAWS program welcomes new and struggling readers to read to a therapy dog. The goal is to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere in which kids can read without correction or interruption and learn not just to read, but to love reading as well.

Civic Center Library

The Warren Civic Center Library is relaunching Babies ❤️ Books, with expanded kits!

The kits are available for families who live in Warren, with children from birth to age three. The kits are based on the Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read program and will focus on Talk, Sing, Read, Write and Play. They are designed to help develop early literacy skills and instill a love of reading for the very young. Included in each kit are two board books, scarves, finger puppets, song and rhyme sheets with ideas for parents and caregivers to incorporate the activities to help develop early literacy skills. Families who return a brief survey included with the kit will be eligible for a second kit, with all new books and activities. The second round of kits will be available after Labor Day.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Warren Civic Center Library, September 1 – September 30, 2022

What is your reading personality? Are you the erudite? Or maybe the sports fan? Could you be the realist? This month, you can stop by the Warren Civic Center Library Teen Room and find out! Take our simple quiz, and then check out some pre-selected books based on your quiz results. You can be entered in a raffle for gift cards, candy, and other great prizes. Everyone is welcome to take the quiz or check out books, but the raffle prizes are for people in grades 6-12 only. There will be ongoing drawings for Detroit Tigers tickets and additional prizes will be awarded in the middle of October.
