Holds 

Morton Grove and CCS library cardholders can place holds through our catalog, in person, or by phone. You can choose email, phone, text, or mail notifications for available holds. Items are held for 5 days on the Holds shelf (1 day for new movies and video games).

Renewals

Most items renew 2 times automatically if no one else is on the waiting list. Interlibrary loan items can be renewed only once. Call 847-965-4220 or log in to renew online.

Interlibrary Loan

Can't find an item at the library or in the consortium of area libraries? MGPL cardholders can request books, articles, CDs, and DVDs through interlibrary loan.

  • Requests can take anywhere between 7 days and several weeks depending on the location of the book and the lending library's response time
  • The loan period for each item is determined by the lending library
  • Audiovisual material available from Illinois libraries only
Contact the Info Desk at 847-929-5101 for interlibrary loan requests and renewals.
 
 
 

LOAN PERIODS AND FEES

As of January 2019, Morton Grove Public Library has eliminated overdue fees on most materials for Morton Grove residents.
  • Each item still has a due date.
  • The catalog system will automatically renew, up to 2 times, any physical items that are eligible for renewal and that are not reserved for another patron. 
  • Cardholders are responsible for honoring the due date.
  • If an item is two weeks overdue, cardholders will be blocked and will not be able to check out any more items.  
  • Once the item is returned, the block is removed from the cardholder’s account.
