The Evanston Public Library (EPL) will bring services and programs to the Robert Crown Center this summer, beginning the week of June 17. Children, teens and adults can participate in the library’s Summer Reading Program, sign-up for library cards, borrow books, and receive information about additional library services and programs. Children’s Outreach Librarian Rick Kinnebrew, Community Engagement Librarian Jill Skwerski and Latino Outreach Library Assistant Daylily Alvarez will spearhead these new efforts with help from additional library staff.
“This expansion of services is vital in staying connected with patrons on the south and west ends of the city, as well as providing an additional access center for our growing Latino community, ” said Karen Danczak Lyons, Director of EPL.
The current plan brings library services to Robert Crown Center on Mondays from 12pm-2pm; and on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3pm-6pm, until mid-August. The service hours were chosen in conjunction with camps held at the Robert Crown Center, to be convenient for both the children and the parents/guardians who escort them there, to make use of the services
