A Message from Morton

It is almost Spring (March 20th), and World Poetry Day (March 21st). Stop by Morton Memorial Library to get books, music, or movies to celebrate.

While you are here you will be greeted by one of our fantastic Morton staff members. Kim is responsible for all of the library displays that are so tempting – who else knew that March 1st was National Pig Day and had pulled lots of fun pig books? Peppa is very popular. Lawrence is responsible for starting up the Second Saturday Scrabble afternoons at Morton, please mark Saturday, April 14th on your calendar! Tesha makes everything beautiful with flowers. If you attended either of the Talent Show events, you saw her gorgeous ‘Willow’ pieces! In fact, if you are interested in renting Morton Hall, Tesha has a portfolio and you can check with her about floral decoration for your event.

Come in to Morton to borrow, read, chat, study, or attend one of the many many events that we have scheduled for you!

eBooks for Kids!

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.
