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.

Tuesday, April 12, 6 pm, Miller Library

Five time winner of the National Morel Hunting Championship Anthony Williams will be at the Miller Library to give tips on where to find and how to pick morels.

Morels are wild mushrooms foraged from wooded areas during the spring months, usually March to June. When cooked, they have a delicate, nutty flavor. Because morels are foraged and have a short season, they can be hard to find, and when you do, they are often expensive, sometimes $20 to $30 per pound.

 Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first time picker, you’re bound to find a new perspective to gathering the illusive morel mushroom! 

Registration is required. Register here.
