Warren Public Library Friends is a non-profit, volunteer organization of Warren County residents who love what our library does for us.

  • We support it through fund-raising and volunteer work.
  • We are dedicated to promoting and enhancing the library and its services.
  • We volunteer our time and help to develop and present programs.
  • We provide extra funding needed for the library.
  • We raise thousands of dollars with sales of books, promotional items, and special projects.

Used books donated to Warren Public Library are sorted by volunteers. The books are sold through The Book Cellar, the Rolling Book Sale and annual Used Book Sale events.

As all the work is done by volunteers, all proceeds are donated back to the library to buy books and materials for the library’s collection. Our volunteers supplement the work of the staff all year. 

Friends Meetings Are Open

The Friends Board meets at 5 PM on the first Tuesday of each month at the Warren Library. Meetings are open to the public. We welcome your participation!

The Warren Library Friends will meet for an Annual Meeting on a date to be determined, after the library reopens to the public. All who are interested may attend. Please watch this page for updates.

ROLLING BOOK SALE

This is a year-round project of Warren Library Friends. It is open whenever the library is. As you enter the library’s main doors, there is a bookshelf to your immediate right, next to a comfortable chair. As with all our projects, proceeds help to support the library.

The inventory in the Rolling Book Sale is reviewed and refreshed regularly by our volunteers. Be sure to check it each time you visit the library!

The Book Cellar is OPEN: Tues. 5-7:30 PM; Thurs. 11 PM – 2 PM and 5-7:30 PM; and Sat. 11 AM- 2 PM or whenever Sherm the Bookworm is flying outside!
