The "Friends and Foundation of the Northfield Public Library" (FFNPL) is a non-profit, community-based organization since 1983 that supports the Northfield Public Library. In cooperation with the Northfield Public Library, FFNPL supports early literacy programs, recruits volunteers, provides support for equipment in the Library such as computers and eBook readers, and organizes special events including fundraising trivia bees, concerts, speakers and book readings. 


Yes, the Friends are still looking for those generous angels in the community to support the 2015 Library Improvement Project.  Cash donations, pledges for 2015 and 2016 and appreciated stocks on or before March 1, 2015 will make a big difference in making our library a better library.

Read more about it here or on the library's website.

You can also donate online at our GiveMN webpage; click here.

Kathy Sommers, Friends Treasurer extraordinaire, retires after ten years of
outstanding service. The Friends Board, family
and other friends celebrated her service with a cake that understates her thoroughness in keeping the books (more than one, to be sure) as the organization has grown exponentially.  Thank you, Kathy!

Former chair Bill North has assumed the treasurer's mantel and duties; see the full board roster for 2015 here.


We welcome your donations and membership in FFNPL and your support of the work we do for the benefit of our library.
