IM @ the Library

During October the Morton Grove Public Library's reference staff will be providing reference service via live chat on a trial basis. During the trial period, MGPL-based chat will be online from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, though our goal is to eventually expand the service to all hours the Library is open.

Who can use our live chat?
Any adult or teen (grade 7 and up) can use live chat.

How it works:
If you want to ask us a question, just send a message to our Screen Name, askmgpl. This Screen Name works for AIM, Yahoo, and Google Talk.

So if you have a question, send an IM to the Library! Check it out!
