Here's your Today in Niles and Morton Grove report for Friday, Aug. 23.
- The Niles Library is closed all day today for a staff in-service meeting. They will reopen tomorrow, probably all bright-eyed and reinvigorated.
- So hop on over to the Morton Grove Library with your new iPad or other device. From 10 to 11:30 a.m., a techie will show you how to use it and answer your questions. You don't even have to hug them!
- The Niles Friday night concert series has ended, but you can hear Broadway Babies at 7 p.m. at the Morton Grove Library. Three female vocalists will entertain with Broadway tunes such as "Cabaret," "Moon River" and "I Dreamed a Dream."
- Skokie is putting on its Backlot Bash extravaganza starting today at 6 p.m. and going all weekend. There's free concerts, food, a silent film fest, pancake breakfast, carnival, sidewalk sales and more.
