Annual Campaign 2023: Installation of full shades at Northfield Public Library
Help the Library beat the heat, glare and energy bills!
The installation of full shades in the atrium at Northfield Public Library will bring energy efficiency and comfort to staff and visitors of the library. The proposed installation of adjustable blinds along the top layer of glass windows facing south and east (twelve panels) will cost approximately $26,500. Our goal is to raise $12,000 or more through Give to the Max and our Annual Fund Drive go towards the shades!
2023 Trivia Bee winners with Bill North, the bee, and MC Jessica Peterson-White
Trivia Bee a Great Success
This year's Trivia Bee brought together 24 teams, a stunning heads or tails competition, and an overtime finish with ad hoc questions.
Furnishing the Library Oasis
Book bags for sale at the library. Besides being perfect for carrying library books and other media, they are great for shopping, travel and, in a pinch, laundry. AND, they tell the world about our beautiful library! If you forget this bag when you go to the library, look for the Boomerang Bags, reusable, returnable cloth book bags.
