If you weren't able to make the free showing or forgot to tune to Milwaukee Public Television on Thursday when it first hit the air, don't fret — the second season premiere of "Around the Corner with John McGivern," featuring Shorewood, is available online in its entirety.

Emmy award-winning actor John McGivern leads unique field trips through Wisconsin towns and neighborhoods discovering their secrets and history. In all of the episodes he bumps into local historian John Gurda, who shares fascinating historical gems about town settlers, buildings, parks and neighborhoods.

When McGivern visited Shorewood this summer, he ran into Gurda in Hubbard Park. He also chats with business owners at Goody Gourmets, Benji's Deli, Vanity Fur and Chattel Changers, drops by the Wisconsin Gazette newsroom, explores historic landmarks like the so-called "Mushroom House" on North Lake Drive and interviews with Village President Guy Johnson and Shorewood High School Principal Matt Joynt, among others.

Not surprising--I think Morris turns into Woodburn at some point...

My mistake--A look at the map shows that they are 1 block apart until Morris meets Cumberland...

The one I am referring to is not the Lake drive one. It is between Oakland and Maryland either Olive or Marion, perhaps it is gone or not on the registry. Nice idea though. I encourage more. Where I am the thing might get stolen or hit. The stole my christmas decorations what is to stop them from stealing my little library.

I think I know where that is. On my way home from work yesterday, I drove on Olive between Murray and Maryland, and on the North side of the street, there appeared to be what could be a Little Library. It had the right size and shape, but was covered with a gray tarp. Perhaps it is 'closed' for the winter.

So now that we've established the location of the library, who's ready to go burn some books!?
