Your Award-Winning Library and Friends
In case you missed it (how?!), our Northfield Public Library was named The Best Library in MN by WCCO-TV on September 8. See it all here.
The Friends were awarded recognition by the MN Association of Library Friends for their "Celebration of Friends Book Bags" at the MALF conference in Duluth on September 29. The state association liked our fancy "Jubilate" book bag inspired by John Maakestad's painting (which you can find in the atrium) and the blue book bags given to families at Greenvale Park Community School, funded by WINGS (Women in Northfield Giving Support).
