9th annual Bloack Party: Before the football game against Georgetown, the 9th annual celebration of creativity features student art exhibitions, music, dance, interactive (free!) arts activities, and delicious food from local restaurants took place

Hey…so remember that Winter Block Party we had all planned out for you back in February that was then canceled due to that Super Bowl Sunday blizzard? Well we’re bringing it back. And this time, it’s going to be better (and warmer) than ever!

Join us here at the Library on Sunday, May 3 for our Spring Block Party! From 2 to 4 pm, you can discover “How to Plan a Niles Neighborhood Block Party” this summer while your family has fun creating crafts, enjoying refreshments, and more. You will also have the opportunity to meet with community organizations that can help you make your block party a memorable one. To register for this event, click here.

Get ready for your best summer yet!
