Alas, no more radio shows!

The Warren Public Library has turned out to be so busy in the new location…that I’ve had to give up doing our radio show, Book Talk, on WMRW 95.1 FM.

I’ll leave all the book lists up for a little longer, in case someone is trying to remember the title of a book mentioned on a past show.

Thanks for the support,

Deborah Kahn, Director, Warren Public Library
