Take Flight! Wildlife Education with Mark Booth – Wednesday June 16th at 1:00 PM

Take Flight! will be here at 1:00PM on Wednesday, June 16th at Solid Rock United Methodist.

Mark will be sharing a talk called “Birds of Prey and People.” Raptors: hawks, owls, falcons, and their kin have long held our imagination. See what it’s like to be hawk eyed or falcon fast by meeting these magnificent predators up close and hearing the stories of our shared history.

Summer Reading 2021

Hello adults and young readers, we are gearing up for summer reading at the Warren Public Library.  The theme this year is Tails & Tales, a mix of animals and fairy tales.  Our adult program is also scheduled for this summer.

Sign-ups for all ages begin Tuesday June 1st, right after Memorial Day. 

Summer Reading starts Monday June 7th.  Kids and teens will run until the end of July.  Adults run until the end of August.

Stay tuned this week to learn what special programs are visiting the library this year.  We have some returning favorites and some exciting new guests. 

 

Tails and Tales Summer Reading Guests

Our last special guests for Tails and Tales this year are quite fitting: the Zoomobile crew from the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.
 
 
The Zoomobile will be at 1:00PM on Wednesday, June 30th at Solid Rock United Methodist.
 
Zoo instructors and some special furry guests will come to talk about animal habitats. Every animal has four basic needs that must be met in their habitat in order to survive.
 
Everyone is welcome to attend, not just those involved in summer reading.
 
 
 
 

Our third summer reading guests are returning favorites Brian and Christina Getz from Pretty Funny Balloons. 

Pretty Funny Balloons will be here at 1:00PM on Wednesday, June 23rd at Solid Rock United Methodist.

We will explore the animal kingdom by:

– Reading and acting out a children’s book with audience volunteers and balloon costumes,

– Teaching everyone how to make their own balloon animal to take home,

– Learning about the biggest, smallest, cutest and deadliest animals in the world with high energy balloon sculpting,

– Sharing some of our favorite animal books, and

– Learning how we can protect the environment where animals live (including learning where a balloon comes from.)

Everyone is welcome to attend, not just those involved in summer reading.
