The Morton Grove Public Library has served our community with entertainment, information, education, and cultural experiences for more than 80 years. Beginning as a volunteer program with nothing but a book collection barrel and a storefront, MGPL has transformed into a dynamic community centerpiece in Morton Grove. Our commitment to service and education has remained the same throughout the years, while our collection and programs have evolved to match our unique and diverse population.
The Morton Grove Public Library will provide a place offering materials, programs, and services to assist the community in its pursuit of personal growth and lifelong learning.

Morton Grove Public Library will meet the needs of its growing and increasingly diverse community by providing services and partnering with other community organizations. All will be welcomed to follow their interests, expand their dreams, learn new skills and interact with other members of the community to enhance their quality of life. The Board of Trustees and staff will work together to serve the public and respond to the changing role of libraries.
