Support Our Library


The Morton Public Library is grateful for all of the wonderful donations we receive from patrons and the community. There are many different ways to donate to the library:

Morton Community Foundation 
The Morton Community Foundationholds two funds that benefits the library. Donations can be made to either fund.

  • The Morton Public Library Fundsupports the library’s mission to actively connect people to books, resources and technology and provide opportunities for learning, collaboration and enjoyment. 
  • The Summer Reading Fundprovides funds to support the library’s annual summer reading program, including our popular Friday programs. The Summer Reading Fund was started with the Bernice L. Oberlander/Lynn R. Walters Library Summer Reading Endowment fund, a component fund of the Morton Community Foundation. 

Memorials
The Morton Public Library is always honored when community members think of us to memorialize loved ones. You may honor a loved one with monetary contributions to be used to purchase books or other materials that your loved one would have enjoyed. The library puts nameplates in these books, honoring the person who has passed away. Patrons also sometimes make monetary donations – big or small – in remembrance of a loved one. We are happy to work with you to find the best way to honor the memory of your loved one.

Monetary Donations
The Morton Public Library appreciates monetary donations of any size. If you would like to make a monetary donation to the library, please make checks payable to the “Morton Public Library” and either mail them to us or bring them to the Check Out Desk. If there is a specific item or type of item that you would like your donation to go towards, please don’t be shy! We’re happy to work with you. We will also happily provide a letter for tax purposes.

Used Books
Our ongoing Book Sale raises thousands of dollars each year for the library and we couldn’t do it without your donations! If you have books, CDs, DVDs or audiobooks that you'd like to donate to the library, please know we accept materials that are clean and have been gently used. We also accept magazines of the current month/season. We DO NOT accept VHS or cassette tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, or old publication collections with numerous volumes. Please no items that are dirty, torn, water damaged or in poor condition.
