On Thursday, May 10th, we will celebrate the generosity of Suzanne Borrelli with the dedication of our new reading room. I believe that Suzanne’s love of Morton Memorial Library had to do a lot with what we have always striven for here – a feeling of welcome, of friendship, of discovery.
Today seemed to encapsulate that very feeling. We had students practicing for a piano recital in Morton Hall, tutoring taking place in the reading room, people coming in just to check out seeds from the seed library, and yes, folks coming in to become members of the library and to check out books.
There was such a feeling of camaraderie – people who were old friends ran into each other and people who had never been to Morton found that they indeed knew others patrons.
Thank you, Suzanne! And thank you all for making Morton home!
The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m.

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
