The Warren-Newport Public Library offers services and programs to support preschools, schools, and childcare centers located within the library district boundaries. See below for available services:
School Newsletter from your School Liaison
Please contact April Barron, Grades K-5 Liaison, or Scott Krinninger, Grades 6-12 Liaison for the latest edition of the school newsletter. If you would like to contact us regarding preschool or daycare services, email the Youth Services Department.
Booklists and Pathfinders
The library offers a wide variety of booklists to students by age, grade, awards, read-a-likes, etc. With two weeks notice, the library can develop information pathfinders on topics that are part of the school curriculum.
Access e-books, e-audiobooks, and more with Hoopla and Libby (Overdrive) with your WNPL library card.
Educational Support Devices
The Warren-Newport Public Library District was awarded Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) grant to purchase and circulate Chromebooks and hotspots to patrons to support remote learning. These can be checked out for six weeks with three renewals.
WNPL Youth Services staff will pull sets of up to 15 items on specified subjects/areas for preschool and grade school teachers who have a WNPL library card, or teach at schools within WNPL District boundaries. A complete list of schools can be found at the bottom of this page. Teachers should use their personal or school library card. Standard WNPL policies regarding number of items, circulation periods, service fees, etc. will apply. We pull books based on shelf availability at the time of the request. Please remember that certain topics are seasonal and may have limited resources at certain times of the year.

The library has many online resources that can help your students. While all are available at the library, most databases can also be used off-site (school, home, etc.) with a WNPL library card. You can also find resources to help grade school students here.
