Sound Zones

For an even better experience at the Niles-Maine District Library, we present to you Sound Zones in the Library. Zones are divided into three categories: Silent, Quiet, and Social. You will notice signs throughout the Library signifying which Sound Zone is in that area. Sometimes there will be multiple Zones on a specific floor. We appreciate your cooperation.
