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. 


December 31, 2014 is an important date for pledges and donations to the 2015 library improvement project. If you are finalizing your 2014 tax-deductible donations, please remember the library's capital improvement project.  The Friends and Foundation are aiming to raise $1M to match the City's contribution toward an even better library. Cash donations, financial pledges for 2015 and 2016, and donations of stock are all needed before the end of 2014.

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


December is the month for generous giving.  Consider giving friends and family a donation to the Friends and Foundation as a gift that will keep giving throughout the year and throughout the community.  You can designate that the gift be directed to the Summer Reading Program (great for grandparents), eBooks and other digital resources (great for teens and young adults), or even to the library improvement project's capital campaign (great for all ages). Give a library holiday gift!


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