The Library is equipped with printers and copy machines. Customers can print or copy in either black-and-white for 10 cents a page or in color for 20 cents per page.
The first priority for use of the computers in the Morton College Library is for academic research and support of College-related study.
According to the Morton College Code of Student Conduct in the Morton College Catalog, the following is not allowed:
Do not leave children unattended. Never allow children out of your eyesight if they are under the age of 16.
Please remember that you are responsible for the protection and safety of your child. The library does not have adequate staff to monitor children nor, in any case, can staff act in loco parentis. The library is a potentially dangerous place for children, filled with heavy objects, electrical equipment, and power outlets. The library is open to the public and, as in any public place; it is not possible to identify who is entering the building or what their intent may be. In addition, please be advised that we do not have full-time security in the library. It is the responsibility of the parent to anticipate and avoid dangerous and disruptive situations.
Library Staff may request identification to verify the age of any unaccompanied child. If the unaccompanied child does not have identification that documents his or her age, the Campus Safety will be called to assist the staff in locating a parent or guardian and ensuring the safety of the child.
Like all patrons, children are expected to use the library in a quiet, orderly manner. Please remind children not to disrupt the work and study of other library patrons or the library staff. Any disorderly patron may be asked to leave the library.
Patrons should bring appropriate reading material from home for children. The Morton Library collects college and research library materials, unlike the public library which collects materials for K-12th grade homework support.
Always accompany children to the restrooms.
Children under the age of 16 are allowed to use computers only when closely supervised by their parent or guardian. Parents are especially advised to supervise any child under the age of 16 in his/her use of Internet resources.
With planning, both you and your children can have a safe and pleasant trip to the library. The library staff thanks you for your cooperation.
Dry snacks and COVERED drinks are allowed.
Delivery of food from area restaurants is not allowed.
Thanks for helping us keep the Morton College Library clean and sanitary!
Morton College has a very limited number of group study rooms on the second floor of the library. These seven rooms are intended to provide students with space to conduct collaborative academic work. They are not intended for social gatherings, classes or other extra-curricular activities. To help ensure that these rooms remain available for all students, please review and abide by the policies below:
