Welcome to new Library Board member Eric Shotwell!

Eric Shotwell is the newest member of the White Lake Township Library Board of Trustees. Eric moved with his wife Nichole and three children to White Lake in 2005 from Waterford. He is a graduate of Hope College with a double B.A. in English and Business Administration. Eric spent more than 25 years working in publishing and educational technology sales and 6 years with a major public library book distributor which gave him the opportunity to visit and work directly with literally hundreds of libraries. He is currently a Solutions Architect with D2L, a company in the higher education learning management space. In his spare time, Eric loves to cook, and is an avid reader and an amateur genealogist. His wife Nichole claims he has more ways to brew coffee than any one person should realistically own.
