Inspired by GFWC International's long history of supporting literacy, the GFWC-Morristown worked with Maricopa County Library District (MCLD) and the Morristown Elementary School District Board to open a free public library in the school's “Old Main” building.
In partnership with MCLD, "Morristown Volunteer Library" hosts an 8-week Summer Reading Program which includes 4 weeks of story times plus 3 professional performances for children.
The library has a collection of approximately 3,000+ books and media. Over 600 adult and children's books are refreshed quarterly with 90% of the books provided by the Maricopa County Library District and the Phoenix Public Library Friends group. GFWC funds the purchase of the remaining 10%. The collection includes current best sellers and a sizable Large Type collection. The children’s room has inviting furniture and rugs with lots of beautiful picture books, chapter books and non-fiction.
All library staff are volunteers and include retired professional librarians.
June through August: Tuesday, 12 - 2 and 4 - 6 PM
