Fall-Winter 2020

As of November 25, the library is providing curbside-only service. We are unable to provide in-library services including computer use and browsing.

Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened in our community and across Wisconsin, Shorewood Public Library can no longer guarantee a safe environment inside the library for the public and our staff.

Monday 9:00 AM-7:00 PM

Tuesday 9:00 AM-7:00 PM

Wednesday 9:00 AM-7:00 PM
