We have an amazing library in Morton, seriously. And while many of you know I’m not someone that will necessarily sit down and read a novel, that does not mean the library isn’t for me, or for you for that matter.
First off, if you are a young mother, I strongly suggest taking advance of some of the awesome programs that the Morton Public Library offers – story-time, math club, treasure hunts, Toddler Time, Early Explorer classes, and so much more. This can be helpful in the Summer as well if you are running out of things to keep your children entertained – make a note for next summer! And if you are not a young mother, there is something for everyone. The Morton Public Library holds classes such as College Readiness Strategies for you and your college student, Family Feud Nights, Speakers like Ieda Herman who talks about her life after a stroke, Dance Classes, Book Clubs, and so much more.

Secondly, if you are interested in “unlocking new doors” and buying a home, and you love to read, the library can be a fantastic place for resources and reading materials, to get you prepared for this next step. Here are some top books of 2019 for you to check out:
- The Millennial Way Home – this book goes over a proven strategy that millennials can, in fact, buy a house, and how to go about it.
- The Essential First-Time Homeowner’s Book – A book with some great tips like how a Realtor can help first-time buyers with home buying, mortgage loans, down payments, home sellers, etc., what all buyers should know about FHA loans, USDA loans, and others, advice to help home buyers clean up their credit score, and more!
- Happy House Hunting – A planner and checklist for the home-buying process!
- The Super Simple Home-Buyer’s Handbook – A condensed and simplified, short but powerful, book with all the tips.
- Real Estate Terms – This book basically teaches you all the jargon of the Real Estate market, and how to understand and speak with confidence.
I would love to hear your thoughts on these novels, or others! And let’s let our librarians know such how lucky we are to have such an awesome, welcoming library in our community.
