Library Giving Day: April 2022
One of our top concerns is the library’s beloved elevator. It has been a part of our historic building for 30 years and, unfortunately, the existing parts are wearing down at a fast rate. Due to the elevator’s age, these parts can be hard to find and in some instances, they have to be built from scratch to keep the elevator in operation. Updating the elevator is costly at upwards of $60,000. Please keep this service in mind as it is the only way wheelchair users and other patrons with limited mobility are able to access our second floor.
Another area of concern at our library is keeping up with the technology needs of our patrons. To continue to provide the internet access to our new hotspots, vital software for staff resources, and updating older equipment used by patrons, we are asking for donations in this area, too.
We encourage patrons and library lovers to make a gift in support of Morrill Public Library anytime.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, we adapted to respond to our patrons’ desire to continue to enrich their minds and nurture their curiosity. We’ve helped those staying at home navigate the digital library landscape and provided valuable distance learning resources to people of all ages in our community.
