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. 

Look for the Friends out and about!
You'll find the library Friends in these places in the coming days:
  • Sunday, September 11, 2-4 PM in the DJJD parade along Division Street; Booker too!
  • Sunday, September 18, 2-3 PM, the Friends annual meeting in the library's meeting room.
  • Thursday, September 29, 7-8:30 PM, "Just how do you research and write local history?!", a panel discussion featuring Bruce Colwell, Susan Hvistendahl and Earl Weinman and his students.
