A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
In light of the recent election and subsequent events both across the country and here in Morton Grove, the Morton Grove Public Library would like to reassure all of the residents of our diverse community that we are committed to providing a welcoming and safe place for everyone no matter age, sex, race, national/ethnic origin, religion, political views, sexual orientation, gender identity or citizenship status. We support freedom of speech and the open exchange of ideas and opinions — but we will not tolerate any speech or action that threatens the safety of any member of our community.
All are welcome here.
Pam Leffler, Director
