Shorewood — The Village Board on Monday will consider boosting the Business Development Loan Fund to $500,000 from $100,000 and will consider lending $35,000 from the fund to a new bookstore.
Open Book, a cooperative, plans to open next month at 4093 N. Oakland Ave. That is the site of the former Harry W. Schwartz bookstore.
The interest rate on the bookstore's loan would be 0% for four years and 3% for six years.
