Cards and Cuddles

In celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month at Morton Grove Public Library, Wright-Way Rescue will be at this adoption awareness event.

Come meet cute, cuddly puppies on the front lawn of the Library. If you see a puppy you would like to adopt, reserve it with Wright-Way and finish the adoption process a block away at the Write-Way Rescue North Shore Humane Center that day.

The library will have activities for the whole family to enjoy, so come make dog toys, paint your face like your favorite animal, and enjoy popcorn. And while you're there, sign up for or renew your MGPL card and check out our resources for caring for your new pet.
