Adverse Weather & Emergency Closing Policy

The Shorewood Public Library is a hub in the community, with a climate controlled building open for all ages 60+ hours per week. The Library strives to keep the facility open to the public during inclement weather, and may stay open when the Shorewood School District cancels classes and activities or the Village of Shorewood cancels non-essential services.

All decisions regarding Library closure due to adverse weather or other emergencies are at the discretion of the Library Director, who will attempt to consult the Library Board President.

The Library will follow the Human Resource Manual instructions regarding employee compensation when the library closes due to adverse weather or another emergency.
