The Evanston Public Library will bring services and programs to the Robert Crown Center this summer starting next week.
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 at the center, 1701 Main St.
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, the library's director.
The current plan brings library services to Robert Crown Center on Mondays from noon to 2 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m., 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.
