The Warren Public Library is looking for books… and other materials. The library will accept material donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11, and 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21.

“This will be the last time we are able to accept any materials until next summer when our renovation is complete,” library Director Kelli Knapp said.

Volunteers will scan donations to make sure they fit the criteria.

“All items must be pleasing to the eye and nose and ear,” Knapp said. “We cannot accept items that must be trashed or recycled or are otherwise unusable by others.”

The library will accept: hardcover, paperback, fiction, nonfiction, and vintage books; DVDs; CDs; and puzzles and games.

Items that will not be accepted include: older textbooks; encyclopedias; dictionaries; bibles; Reader’s Digest books; magazines; VHS tapes; cassette tapes; and vinyl records.

Genealogists to Meet

The Warren County Genealogical Society will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11, in the dining room of the First Lutheran Church.

“The program for the evening will be the first in a series of video programs from Anita Foeman’s ‘Identity in the Age of Ancestral DNA,'” according to a release. “Professor Foeman notes that more than 20,000,000 ancestry DNA kits have been purchased over the past decade and she discusses why these tests have become so popular so quickly and how their information changes us both psychologically and physically.”

“She also discusses the genesis of ancestry testing and what it can and cannot tell us, why some family stories stick while others fade until ancestry profiles expose them, and what makes any family and ethnic identity authentic in the DNA age,” according to the release. “Finally, this evening she discusses the need for a mindful approach to seeking, receiving, sharing, and discussing ancestry test results.”

There will also be an opportunity for members and guests to seek research assistance and to share success stories with the group. The society welcomes anyone interested in family history and research. Masks and social distancing will be required. Please call 723-8026 for additional information.
