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.

Computer with colorful keyboard and mouse

The Warren Public Library is pleased to announce that Busch Branch Library now has an AWE Early Literacy Station, an all-in-one computer station that is preloaded with more than 75 educational software titles.

The AWE Early Literacy Station’s preloaded software has an early literacy focus. The interactive games explore skills for reading as well as for STEAM topics—science, technology, engineering, art, and math. The station is available for children to use while the library is open. It does not require a library card, and it cannot access the internet.

Parents and Caregivers: If your child uses the AWE Early Literacy Station at Busch Branch Library, please consider completing an optional questionnaire. Your answers will help plan future programming.

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