Prairie Plant-a-Thon!

Here’s your chance to dig in the dirt, inside! We will plant native prairie seeds harvested from the Niles Community Garden in biodegradable pots to start a Rain Garden of your own! You will get a pot to bring home. For families (children under 3rd grade must have their parents/guardians with them). Drop in any time between 10-11:30 am.

Reading with Rover

Does your child need to build confidence when reading out loud? Our friendly dogs are great listeners, always positive and always fun to cuddle with! Grades K and up (beginning to advanced readers, in room without parents). Call 847-663-6622 or drop by to sign up for a 20 minute slot. Priority will be given to Niles Public Library cardholders; siblings will be given 20 minutes slots only if there is no waiting list, otherwise they will share a slot. For more information email
