Things You Might Not Know About MGPL

Even if you've lived in Morton Grove your whole life and used the Library since you were a kid in Youth Services, there might be a few things you don't know...

- You can reserve a computer!  Adults and teens in 7th grade and up all use the computers across from the Reference Services Desk.  A lot of times they are all full, but you can reserve the next available computer or even one for later.  If it's Monday and you know you're going to finish a paper Thursday evening, you can book a computer for three days in advance!  Want to learn how to do it?  Ask us at the Reference Services Desk to show you!

- You can request an item from another library!  If we don't own something you were hoping to get from MGPL, ask for help at the Reference Services Desk.  We can tell you where it is and might be able to borrow it from another library for you.

- You can get help from a live tutor online or use another great electronic resource for free!  Go to databases.webrary.org to access them, and if you want help figuring out which one to use, just ask!

- You can chat with a librarian from home!  We can put a book on hold for you, help you find information, and a lot more when you IM us.  Just go to chat.webrary.org and if we're online, start chatting!
