Dorothy Busch Branch Library

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.

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.
