Now that school is back in session, you may think about the library as a place to come directly from school. Welcome!
If you need something to do, check with the Children’s Library Assistant for some card or board games. You are welcome to use these in the library.
If you want to use a laptop or tablet, the library does have wireless access, but you will need to get a library card, and a parent will have to sign a permission form for you to use the internet in the library. Your parent can make one trip to the library to get you a card and internet permission. Your first card is free.
The library is open until 8PM Monday through Thursday, and 1-5PM on Friday and Saturday in September. September is library card sign-up month, so if you have never had a library card, come in and get one now!
In the next few weeks, a discovery center will be set up, next to the parenting collection, downstairs at the library. The center will display a challenge each week that you can tackle with your child. It will highlight math and science concepts for preschool and elementary-aged students. We hope this will spark some interesting ideas and questions. Of course, there will always be related books on display for you to take home and explore with your family. Adding activities to your library visit is one way to encourage curiosity and exploration for everyone.
Warsaw Public Library is a great spot for youth groups to visit. If you are involved in a youth group such as scouts, or you homeschool and need a special program, please contact our youth services assistant at 585-786-5650 to arrange your visit.

According to the dictionary, cozy means warm and comfortable, probably of Scandinavian origin. With their long winter nights, Scandinavians should know about comfort. Come to the library where it’s warm (we hope) and cozy to find a book to take home.
