Allison Fantetti

Teen Services and Technology Library

I joined the Whitefish Bay Public Library in 2017. I have worked all around the Milwaukee area over the last five years including Brown Deer, Oak Creek, and New Berlin. Previous to that I worked my way up from page to intern in LaGrange IL, a suburb of Chicago. I’m excited to be working with all ages at WFB but focusing on Teens. Most of the reading I do is spent in young adult fiction but sometimes I venture into adult non-fiction. In my free time I can be found listening to podcasts or catching up on TV.

About Whitefish Bay Public Library

A library that is just about lending books seems so last century, doesn’t it?

That’s our philosophy at the Whitefish Bay Public Library, anyway. We believe that everything that we do, we do to make a difference in someone’s life. Creating connections. Building community. Collecting stories. Sure, we have books, but we’re SO much more.
