Play to Win at the Library

Fall is an exciting time of year, and Niagara Falls Public Library is ready to celebrate with fun programs and events.

Join the library as we connect residents through our new Neighbour Night program. Starting Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 6 p.m., a once-a-month "mix and mingle" program will be held.

If you are newly retired, new parents, new to the city, new to Canada or anyone wanting to learn more about their community we invite you to connect with local organizations, service clubs, agencies or businesses. Each session of Neighbour Nights is themed around various aspects of Niagara Falls' vibrant community.

The overarching goal for Neighbour Nights is to create and cultivate social connections between community members and local organizations, service clubs, agencies and businesses for the purpose of increasing community engagement, benefiting all involved and our Niagara Falls community as a whole.

Check out our new cursive writing classes for children ages six and up. The course offers a chance for kids to work on their cursive writing skills and become more confident writers. Or join our keyboarding skills workshop through which children will learn to type fluently, learn computer functions and discover how to interact in many online environments.

Do you love playing video games? Drop in for a knock-down, drag-out, winner-take-all contest to crown the undisputed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Champion of Niagara Falls. This program runs on Saturday, Nov. 2. Or live in the fast lane, Super Mario-style. Double elimination tournament set up on 100cc. Top winners will receive prizes.

Honeymoons and the City of Niagara Falls have gone hand in hand for a very long time, with the first documented Niagara Falls honeymoon occurring in June of 1801.
