Recently, the Library was awarded a RAILS LLSAP membership Grant. RAILS, also known as Reaching Across Illinois Library System, awards grants each year to public libraries in Illinois. This specific grant was intended to increase membership in RAILS Local Library System Automation Programs by funding start up costs for any RAILS member library that isn't currently an LLSAP member, or would like to upgrade its union list membership.
The Aqua Project began when Monmouth College's brand new Center for Business and Science finished construction. In the process of moving from the old science building, Haldeman-Thiessen Science Center, a 6-foot fish tank was donated to the Warren County Public Library along with a 3-foot filter system. A citizenship class at Monmouth College initiated this project with the assistance of chemistry professor Brad Sturgeon.
The book-a-librarian service from Warren County Library allows patrons to reserve appointments with librarians for up to one hour of uninterrupted, personalized assistance. Patrons can get help with many things such as finding books in the library or learning how to use a computer for the first time. The librarians have a strong foundation with regards to computer use.
