Program – Anna Jackson. Warsaw Public Library.
Contrary to popular opinion library attendance is up over the past ten years. Library’s are not just a repository for books. It is a meeting place, a place to participate in various seminars. Summer reading during 2019 was successful as the library offered a program on the solar system that encouraged children to explore the wonders of outer space.
Free wi-fi is provided to the public, even in the parking lot. Various community groups use the library meeting spaces. Escape rooms and video gaming is also offered at the library.
Work One is using the library computer lab to teach computer skills to those seeking to improve their job skills.
