Use of Electronic Scanning Devices

To provide a better shopping experience for electronic scanning device users in our Bookshop, the Friends of Morley Library Board voted to create dedicated sale dates for electronic scanning device users. These sales, dates to be announced, will allow only those members using electronic scanning devices to shop.  The use of electronic scanning devices will be prohibited at all other regularly scheduled sales.

Ongoing Book Sales 

Visit the Book Corner in the Lobby of Morley Library.  It is just inside the front doors. This is also operated by the Friends of Morley Library and open when the library is open. Here you will find the most recent donations of books, movies & magazines.  Recent bestsellers and other books are almost always for sale.  Look for these books in the Display Case near the stairs.
