The Shorewood Library is truly a community center - a place to meet and greet friends and neighbors while stocking up on great books, movies, and more. So far this year, we've recorded about 115,000 visits to the library - proof that it is a popular destination. We value our community connections. Being seen as an integral part of the Shorewood community is a priority for us. We love seeing so many of you in the library so often. We also love seeing you out and about at community events.
The Shorewood Librarians are an outgoing bunch - literally. Throughout the year, librarians visit the schools to let your kids know about upcoming library programs, present story times, or booktalk some of the newest great reads. Youth Services librarian Heide is often seen at elementary school family nights. Our teen librarian Lisa even chaperoned an SIS Spanish class field trip. You may have spotted our Adult Services/Outreach librarian Hayley setting up our "Business of the Month" display at North Shore Bank. Members of TAB, our Teen Advisory Board, are also helping us spread library cheer throughout the community.
We've definitely been on the move this summer. You have seen us at the Shorewood Criterium and Fourth of July Parade. In the coming weeks, you will see us at National Night Out, the Farmers Market, and other unique Shorewood events. Our librarians aren't the only library folk with full schedules. You may have seen our library mascot Leo painting the town red - or in Leo's case painting the Village red, orange, blue, purple, green, and yellow. He's joined us at the Criterium, Parade, frolicked at the new Atwater Playground, and even "jitter-bugged" at Shorewood's Summer Concert series.
So look for us at some of your favorite community gathering places. Of course, you don't have to wait. You can find us at the library days, nights, and weekends. Stop in for a visit. We bet you'll see plenty of other familiar faces.
