Teen and Adult Nerf Night
(Following the May 13th Nerf Night, we will be on hiatus for the summer months and will resume on October 14th.)
Family Nerf Night
(Following the May 6th Nerf Night, we will be on hiatus for the summer months and will resume on October 7th.)
Think you’re a crack shot? Come find out! Grab your Nerf gear and bring it to this after-hours event! Participants will have full run of the main floor of the library to compete in a series of team and free-for-all Nerf activities. You must bring your own gear to participate. This event is open to all ages, but participants under 12 must have a parent/guardian present in order to attend. A waiver must be signed at the event by either the participant or their parent/guardian and eye protection is encouraged. Doors lock at 6:00 so be sure to arrive before then.
Thursdays, 6:00-7:30 pm
Teens, come and hang out on Thursday evenings, 6:00-7:30 pm for a night of fun dedicated to you! We have games, books, and a great place to study here in the new Teen Department. We’ll have a different theme each week and snacks will be provided. For ages 13-19.
Tween Book Club
Second Friday of each month at 1:00 and 4:30 pm
Teens – this is not your mama’s library! Don’t come here expecting lonely reading booths, musty card catalogs, and a “hush, hush,” no-food-allowed atmosphere. The Niles District Library is alive with technology, fun things to do and new friends to make.
You just have to check our calendar all the time or you will miss something awesome. You may find something with an intriguing name like “Villainy 101”; card, video and life size board games; art lessons; pizza parties; writing workshops; Nerf Olympics; magic shows; or a duct tape craft that will help you explore your hidden talents. We even offer a workout program that will have your muscles toned in no time – just stop by our Youth Services department to find out more. There’s no reason to be bored in the Niles area – the Niles District Library has you covered.
