Library Space and Resource Use
Extend your classroom by using our space and resources. The Library has hosted programs ranging from dramatic readings to band concerts.
We also have a die-cut machine available for your use. You may use the Library's die-cut machine at no charge, as long as you supply your own materials. The die cut machine may be used with paper, foam, or felt only.
If you would like to use the machine, please contact the Youth Services Department 24 hours in advance to ensure that we have the requested dies available. Depending on staffing, we may or may not be able to accommodate walk-in requests.
We are happy to offer extended loans to school staff with preapproval from school administration. Ask your principal or administrator if you are not sure if you have been approved for a teacher loan from the Morton Grove Public Library.
