The professional youth services librarians at Shorewood Public Library are committed to collaborating with area educators. Let us help you find great resources for assignments, support your professional development, and lead your students to the best of the best books, media and more!
Pre-School through 5th grade
Children's Librarian Heide Piehler works primarily with children ages 0-12. She is available to schedule visits to the library and develop age appropriate programs based on your group's needs - story times, literacy presentations and introductions to the library's programs and services including e-books and online resources. She is also available to schedule presentations for parent groups and educators, as well as working with you individually to identify the best books and materials for your children. In cases, where it is difficult to bring groups to the library, Heide is happy to bring library presentations to you.
6th through 12th grade
Teen Librarian, Lisa Quintero, works with tweens and teens in grades 6-12, or ages 12-18. Lisa is available to visit classes of all types and sizes with engaging presentations about new youth and young adult fiction for silent reading; youth, young adult and adult non-fiction for class assignments; using library e-books; and using library databases. Lisa is also happy to consult on specific reading needs your students may have, whether you need something to satisfy a high-achiever, something to hook a non-reader, or a little something special to help a struggling young person.
