The History of the Morgan Library

The Morgan Public Library has been a part of Morgan history since 1939 when the current building was built by Charles Gilfillan in memory of his father. Acres of land were also given to the City to provide for the maintenance of the building. City and County tax money is used to maintain and run the library itself but Gilfillan funds support the building and its maintenance. In the past the City and Police Offices were also in the basement of the building. They have moved to another location in Morgan.

In 2003 a grant was available to make libraries handicap accessible. Our library added an elevator so that our library was accessible to all. That elevator is used by many - young and old. The addition that was also added at that time provided for a new work space and check out station for the librarians plus a much better space for our computer stations and children's area. Our collections are now easier to find and access. And our beautiful window to the park is amazing!

The Morgan Library is a part of the Plum Creek Library System which allows patrons to borrow items from any library in the System through holds placed by the librarian or online and then delivered to the library by courier.

Patrons can also access any library in Minnesota that has their holdings online through MnLINK. This means that nearly any book in the state can be acquired through your local library.


eBooks MN

Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at EbooksMN.org and via free apps from iTunes, Google Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.

No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.

The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.
