- Sign up for the Citizens Police Academy and learn how the Niles Police Department operates. You will learn about laws, evidence and charges; get to ride along in a squad car with an officer on duty, and do a simulation exercise. You'll graduate more knowledgeable about police work.
- If you're a hopeless romantic, there's a cup of tea with your name on it at the Jane Austen Festival: Film and Tea Sunday. The fest starts with a tea. of course, and a screening of Pride and Prejudice, at the Morton Grove Library.
