Teens from 7th-12th grade are welcome to enjoy our dedicated Teen Space, which is great for studying, hanging out, playing games, reading, and more. We have fiction, nonfiction and graphic novel books, magazines, board games, a whiteboard, and table space to spread out and get some work done.





Interested in developing your resume and gaining work experience? Do you enjoy giving back and serving your community? The Morton Grove Public Library is always looking for passionate, enthusiastic, and committed volunteers. To get started, complete the Teen Volunteer Application and we will get back to you within 2 business days. Volunteers need to be at least 13 years old and in 7th grade or higher. Please review our Teen Volunteer Policy for additional information. 




We host book discussions, video game tournaments, ACT/SAT prep sessions, and much more. See all of our teen programs in the Event Calendar.
