Thanks to a generous grant from Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the Niles Public Library District was able to hire two summer interns to assist with our summer reading program for youth. Over 1,750 children from preschool through 7th grade participated in the program this summer. Our two interns, Jenny Hau and Christina Alexandru worked behind the scenes and directly with patrons for a total of 121 hours. This was a first job experience for both of them. Librarian Debbie Graham said, “ I do believe these two wonderful young women really benefited from the experience.”

The Commons area is almost complete and will be the temporary home to Circulation within the next couple of weeks. More information coming soon!
We’re more than half way done with the renovation project. Please let us know if you have any questions.
You’ll find a smaller collection in the lounge area as you enter the Library.

We’re excited to finally open our newly renovated 2nd floor. You’ll find our Fiction collection, as well as, CDs, DVDs, Audiobooks, and more.
What do you think of the new lights?
Surprise, we have more furniture to sell!
Stop by the Niles Library on Saturday, July 20 from 9:30am-12pm. We’re selling office chairs, upholstery chairs, shelving units, and more. All priced to sell.
The sale will take place at the Niles Public Library Lower Level, 6960 Oakton St., Niles, IL 60714. All items are cash or credit and carry. All items are sold as is.
The good news is that the Niles Public Library is at the half way point of our year-long renovation project.
The exciting news is that beginning the week of July 22, the newly remodeled 2nd level (formerly the Reference and computer lab floor) will reopen with many comfortable, bright places to read, work or just browse the Fiction, DVDs, CDs and Audiobook collections.
The inconvenient news is that access to that beautiful new space and our beautiful 3rd floor area will be a bit of a treasure hunt. Getting to the computers, the Reference and Nonfiction on the third floor and the materials on the newly opened 2nd floor will temporarily be via our back stairs. There will be plenty of signs and staff available to guide and assist you. The alternative route will be worth it once you see the great new spaces.
