LIBRARY SPACE AND RESOURCE USE
We 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.
Teacher Materials Requests
Preschool teachers can come into the library for assistance in finding materials for their classroom. We also offer teacher book bags for preschools in Morton Grove. To request a book bag, call the Youth Services Department directly at 847-929-5102 and a member of the Youth Services team will assist you. We are happy to pull up to 5 items over the phone for you for same-day pickup. For requests of more than 5 items, at least 2 business days are required to pull items.
