The number of children in homeschooling has been steadily increasing nationwide, so it makes sense there would be a strong homeschool presence in Niles. That became all the more clear March 4 when 13 homeschooling mothers and their 22 student-children visited the Niles Public Library to learn about the full range of supportive resources it provides.Be the first to comment!
Best known for his work as Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek television series, Nimoy was a beloved philanthropist, poet and film director, though he never stopped enjoying his Star Trek roots. He recently co-starred in the 2009 Star Trek remake, as well as a cameo in the remake’s second installment, Star Trek Into Darkness. In addition to his “Spock” work in movies and on TV, he often lent his voice for video games, animated films and documentaries. He will be missed…by Sci Fi fans and others the world over.Be the first to comment!
Everybody wants students to learn in school, but figuring out how to measure learning can be a huge problem − as Illinois is finding out. Come March, students throughout Illinois will encounter a new standardized exam that has already generated a lot of controversy.Be the first to comment!
Another year, another Oscar Night Party at the Niles Library. This, our 11th annual celebration, was once again a success. Sixty people watched, cheered and even shared fashion gossip with their friends and fellow movie buffs. We played trivia and many people walked out with door prizes, which included movie books, AMC Theatre gift cards and nominated DVDs.
Most of the people were satisfied with the Best Picture winner Birdman, though part of the audience seemed to be rooting for another pick, mainly Boyhood. Whether your favorite film won or not, it was a fun night for movie lovers.
Though we have to wait until next year for the next Niles Library Oscar Night Party, you can check out the winning and nominated DVDs and Blu-rays at the Library all year round to have a movie night at home!
