News & Events
* Annual Appeal: the Best Small Library in America 2016 wouldn't be the best without patrons' ideas, talents and generous financial support that enhance its collections and programs. Please consider a donation to the Library's 2016-2017 Annual Appeal, either online or by printing and mailing this form with your contribution. Thank you very much!
* Warwick Cafe Reading Project: Albert Wisner Public Library is participating in Operation 451 with libraries throughout the country. All libraries stand for and promote knowledge, service to others and the free expression of ideas. Operation 451 is the library community’s response to forces of intolerance and ignorance that seek to divide neighbors, communities and the country. To reaffirm AWPL’s dedication to libraries' operating principles, the winter selection for the Warwick Café Reading Project is Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s classic work on the importance of freedom of information. Free copies of Fahrenheit 451 are available in the following local cafes: Caffé a la Mode, Sugar Shack, Noble Pies Café, Jean Claude’s Patisserie, Conscious Fork Café and Tuscan Café. Please read, discuss and share it with others.
For more information about Operation 451, see this post by the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom. To review the American Library Association’s Bill of Rights, review the Library's materials selection policy.
* College Scholarship: the Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation is pleased to announce the topic of its 11th annual college scholarship essay competition. Any college-bound high school senior who resides within the Warwick Valley Central School District is eligible to submit an essay. Here are the details.
* Family Central Digital Life Survey: Family Central will be hosting and moderating three workshops this winter on families' digital habits and concerns (see the Library's Newsletter for dates and topics.) To supplement the workshops with information gathered from our community, Family Central has created a short survey for local students and parents/caregivers. The survey should take about 5 minutes and responses are anonymous. Please take the survey today!
