Warren Library to temporarily close March 15 – 27, 2021

(02/24/2021) – The Warren Library, 444 Mahoning Ave. NW, will be closed to the public March 15 through March 27, 2021, while some sections of the library are rearranged in preparation for the upcoming expansion project.

The Children’s Department book shelves, tables, computers, and desks; the adult public computers; and fiction and nonfiction book shelves will be moved or shifted so that they may still be accessed while a one-story addition is built onto the south side of the library.

Warren-Trumbull County Public Library (W-TCPL) locations in Brookfield, Cortland, Howland, Liberty, and Lordstown will remain open usual hours during the Warren Library shutdown.

No Warren Library materials will be due during the closure. Customers may still return items to the book/media drops located on the outside of the building or to any W-TCPL location.

Materials that were placed on hold through the library’s online catalog may be picked up in the Warren Library lobby between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on most weekdays. Customers will be notified if they have items available for pickup.

Construction is expected to begin this spring for the project to increase the Warren Library’s size by about 25%. Sections of the current building will also be renovated to better support the library’s increasing technology needs and the need for more flexible spaces and meeting rooms.

W-TCPL Director Jim Wilkins said the majority of the Warren Library’s new space will be utilized for the Children’s Department and the Teen Area to expand for enhanced programming and resources. The library will also increase its number of meeting spaces from two to 11, with various size rooms to accommodate from 2 to 120 people.

The entire project may take 18 to 24 months to complete.
