Shawn Glaser is a lifelong Stillwater resident who works for First State Bank and Trust. Shawn graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a Finance Emphasis. He has fond memories of the Stillwater Library starting as a young child attending story time and checking out books by Dr. Seuss and then Gary Paulsen.  Now as a father, in the hope to create the same fond memories with his kids, Shawn brings his children to the library, and while the library is closed engages them in the virtual tools and events available.

Shawn believes that every great community needs to have a great library as it is an amazing resource.  He is thankful the Stillwater Public Library is world-class and iconic and that he’s able to contribute to it through the foundation.

Shawn served on the foundation board for three years prior to being elected as President in January 2020. The foundation is very grateful to have his leadership, and vision, steering us into the future and now more than ever as we navigate through these uncertain times.  Thank you, Shawn!
