Who Are We?

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.

Puzzle Playoff

Do you enjoy puzzles?  Do enjoy just a bit of competition? Do you enjoy gathering family and friends together for conversation and fun?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then the Friends' Puzzle Playoff is for you.  On Saturday, March 18, the Friends' will host their fourth annual puzzle playoff ONLINE (zoom) from 10:30am -12:30pm.  With their zoom cameras on, teams of up to six puzzle makers will compete to complete a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle in the shortest amount of time from the comfort of your own favorite puzzle making spot.

Friends will deliver the wrapped puzzle on Friday before the event and participants will unwrap them together at the start of competition. Registered teams will receive a zoom link on Friday, March 17, as well.

Nice prizes will go to the winners as well as priceless puzzle-making glory!!

The cost to participate is $25 per team, and all proceeds go to support library programming.  You can register your team here.


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


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.
