Our History


The Friends of the Warren Public Library started in 1970 as Citizens for Library Action, and their purpose was public participation in libraries. In 1972, the group was incorporated as the Friends of the Warren Public Library. Their first book sale, the primary fund-raiser for the group, was held in October 1972.
