Friends of the Morton Township Public Library

The Friends of the Morton Township Public Library is a non-profit community organization for people interested in books and libraries. The members of the Friends focus their attention on library needs and assist in raising funds, donations, endowments and bequests for the Morton Township Library. The Friends have enhanced the services of the library since 1971.

Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of April, May, June, July, August, September and October at 10:15  a.m. at the library.  Meetings begin with a gathering time for conversation and refreshments, sharing time about good reads, followed by an efficient business meeting. Plan to join us to meet new friends and invite your friends and neighbors to join us as well.   


Currently the Friends sponsor two fundraisers:  a summer book sale at the library and the highly successful book sale in Canadian Lakes on Labor Day Weekend.  

Friends' Book Store

The Friends maintain a book store to sell donated hardcover and paperback books.  The book store is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
