MGPL is partnering with the Morton Grove Historical Museum on My Morton Grove, a local stories project focusing on the lives of Morton Grove residents of all ages. The goals of the project are to record and preserve stories—in oral, written, and audiovisual form—from Morton Grove's diverse community residents about their lives, and to advance the understanding that everyone's story is worth telling.

We're eager to hear the stories of Morton Grove residents of all kinds, including:

  • Veterans
  • Long-time residents
  • Senior citizens
  • Immigrants
  • Children and teens
  • Local business owners

If you or someone you know would be interested in sitting down for a recorded interview, or would be interested in contributing in other ways, please complete the form below or contact Chad Comello, Adult Services Librarian, at ccomello@mgpl.org or 847-929-5108.
