Museum Pass

The Detroit Museum Adventure Pass program is back for its fifth and final year!  The program runs from May 25 – September 3 , and features 24 participating Metro-Detroit museums and cultural institutions.

This year, the program works differently than it has in the past.  Instead of coming into the library, all pass checkouts are done entirely online. For instructions on how to check out a pass, visit

Have fun visiting a museum this summer.

Have you ever checked out an eBook through the Warren Public Library? This is a test.

The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, a non-profit research organization in Washington, DC, is conducting an online survey of public library patrons who borrow e-books. If you have checked out or downloaded e-books from a public library, please consider taking Pew Internet’s survey, available at the link below. All responses will be confidential, although your answers may be quoted anonymously in a future report. The survey should take about 15 minutes.

To take the survey, visit:

The Pew Internet Project will also be doing broader surveys of public library patrons general, as well as people (including non-library-users) who own e-readers or tablet computers. If you want to participate in those, you can sign up to be notified of future surveys here.
