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.

Our Library is Open!

Our wonderful Library has re-opened, though in the interests of health and safety, it will continue to host public events like author talks and storytimes, virtually.  Library spaces and furnishings have been modified to keep everyone as safe as possible through social distancing and all visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face masks to create as safe an environment as possible. Face masks are available from the Library if you forget yours.

All digital resources continue to be available. Here is a sample: 

    Lynda.com - tutorials for learning computer programs
    Kanopy - your ticket to thousands of movies is your library card!
    Transparent language - learn a new language
    Libby - e-books and audiobooks you can download to your computer, tablet or smart             phone
    Recorded Books - audiobooks you can download. No waiting!
    TumbleBooks - many resources for children
    Ancestry Library Edition - genealogy 

And much more available from the library's web site: https://guides.mynpl.org/home
