What This Means For You
New Online Catalog
When searching Morton Grove's catalog, you will see items owned by MGPL along with items owned by the other 24 libraries in CCS. (Skokie is not a member of CCS.)
No Overdue Fines for Morton Grove Residents
Effective January 16, we're eliminating overdue fines for Morton Grove residents. (Learn more about MGPL going fine free.)
Automatic Card Registration
Because we share the same catalog system and user database, you don't need to re-register your card separately at Niles, Glenview, Evanston, or other neighboring libraries. (Skokie not included.)
Request & Pick Up Items from Other Libraries
You can request and pick up most items from all CCS libraries from directly within our catalog.
Notifications by Email, Text, Phone
You can be notified of all holds and overdue items by e-mail, phone, text, or mail.
If an item you checked out doesn't have a hold on it, it will automatically renew 3 days before its due date. (Some limitations apply.)
Return Items to Any CCS Library
You can return most CCS library items to any CCS library and the item will be checked in at that location, immediately clearing it from your account.
