As a NASA@ My Library partner, the Warren Public Library received four circulating telescopes through grant funding and a generous donation from the Grosse Pointe Public Library. In partnership with the Warren Astronomical Society, the libraries will offer telescope events throughout the year, as well as the opportunity to check out the telescope and use it to view the night sky at home.

Each Warren Public Library branch has a library telescope for Warren patrons to check out with a valid library card. Each telescope will circulate for one week with no renewals or holds. Each household can check out a telescope once every thirty days. Visit any Warren Public Library Branch for more information.

The Library Telescope program is a national initiative that began in 2008 to give greater access of telescopes and to check them out at public libraries, just as books are checked out.

Top That! is a new series of programs at the Burnette Library where teens will add toppings to different foods and hang out with other tweens & teens. In this month’s program, we’ll top cookies with frosting and candy. Masks will be required when not eating due to current city protocols. Those eating will be spaced apart – teens may also choose to take their cookies home to eat. Please note any food allergies or dietary restrictions when registering.

Ages 10-17. This is an in-person, parent-free program and will take place in the library’s community room. Registration is required. To register or for more information, please call 586.353.0579 or sign up online.
