Our Mission:

The mission of the Morton Public Library District is to support life-long independent learning and to encourage the joy of reading for all ages.

Our History:

Library service in the Village of Morton began in 1922 when the Semper Fidelis club of Morton Community Church organized donations and volunteers for a library. In 1925, the library became tax supported and the first library board was elected.

The current library building was designed by architect Don Westlake and constructed by Diversified Buildings, Inc. The original 9,500 sq. ft. building opened in 1982. In 1998, a 9,700 sq. ft. addition was completed. Many areas in the library are dedicated to donors who contributed to the Building Foundation. Additional funding included a Live & Learn construction grant from the Secretary of State.

The library is governed by an elected board of seven trustees and serves residents of the Village of Morton.
