The Morton Grove Public Library serves the informational, professional, educational and recreational needs of Morton Grove's diverse, multicultural community. Morton Grove Public Library's building of 31,000 square feet houses more than 136,000 items, ranging from current best-sellers to the latest in audiobooks and DVDs, popular computer, history and medicine titles, as well as more than 400 magazines and newsletters. The Library recently became a WiFi Hotspot, offering free high speed access to the Internet for patrons who would rather use their own laptop or portable WiFi-enabled device. Digital eBooks and audiobooks are available for patrons to download via the Library's Web site from any Internet-connected computer.
