A Message from Morton

The Morton Memorial Library and Community House Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of our new Library Director, Sandy Bartlett.

Sandy has been on the staff of the Morton for many years and comes to us with a wealth of experience and enthusiasm.  We are delighted to welcome Sandy on board in her new role as director.  A big thanks goes to Joanne Meyer, former director, for a smooth transition.

Also a very fond au revoir from all of us at Morton to Morton’s Rockin’ Rooks Youth Chess Club. After 10 years, the multi tournament winning chess club is taking a hiatus. Morton will miss their incredible energy and competitive community spirit. So many people to thank, but a huge shout out to D. Suris and Cathy Young! The Rockin’ Rooks are leaving on a high note after winning first place in the MLK Jr. Tournament held at cross-town rival’s St. Joseph’s School in Kingston.

Note:  The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:00 p.m.  The public is always welcome.
