Civic Center Library

The Civic Center branch of the Warren Public Library is pleased to announce a new program we have for families with preschool aged children. Any family that is a resident of Warren and has a child between the ages of 3 to 5 is eligible to receive a free early literacy kit to help prepare children for their kindergarten year. The early literacy kits will allow families to work with their children on specific skills they will need when they enter kindergarten. The kits include two activity workbooks and an early reader book to practice sight words. In addition, the Civic Center Library purchased Playaway Launchpads, which are pre-loaded tablets with educational preschool games, available for checkout with a library card.

Early literacy kits are available for pickup at the Warren Civic Center Library beginning July 1, 2021 and will also be available at children’s programs that are offsite (any outdoor programs that are scheduled at Veterans Memorial Park). Children must be present in order for library staff to issue a kit.

Funding is provided in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library of Michigan.
