These grants are funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.  We used our $1,000 grant to purchase 5 Sony e-readers and 22 popular fiction and nonfiction e-books to enhance the library’s collection for teens.

Niles teens who sign up for summer reading can check out the e-readers from the reference desk on the second floor. The checkout period is the same as for our books, DVDs and video games: 3 weeks.  For more information about our summer reading program, visit our website  or call 847-663-6603.
