A Message from Morton

Happy Summer!
Just a reminder that Morton will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th to celebrate Independence Day!

To all who were able to attend Ken Greene’s “Seed Stewardship” program and those who were not able to be here but who are intrigued . . .
We are hoping under the guidance of Ken to start a seed exchange/library here at Morton.  If you have any interest in helping with this project please contact Sandy at sandy[at]mortonrhinecliff.org.  What could be more perfect than a seed library at our library?  We have more programs coming up in the sustainability series so there is more to discover and implement.  And as always there are other fun events to attend and everyone is always welcome at the library proper!

Note:  The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m.  The public is always welcome.


OCEARCH Shark Tracker June 20, 2017

Here’s an educational way for children or adults to get some insight on the watery peregrinations on one of nature’s most mysterious predators.

You can track the movement of a particular shark if you click on a name.  Or take a look at their profile.

Click on the where “where have I been” button to see the fascinating journey…Mary Lee visited the Jersey shore earlier in the month.

Enter the sweepstakes to tag and name a shark!

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.
