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!


Youth Services Librarian, Abby Ott, 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. They are 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, Abby is happy to bring library presentations to you.

Inclusive Services Librarian, Quinn Brakob, works with tweens and teens ages 13-18. They are available to schedule visits for 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. He 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.
