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. 

Thursday, September 29, 7-8:30 PM in the Library meeting room:
Finding Local History in Nearby Nooks and Crannies
A panel discussion among local historians Bruce Colwell, Susan Hvistendahl and Earl Weinmann and his Middle School students, moderated by Northfield Historical Society Director Hayes Scriven
The panelists/authors will talk about how they research and write about Northfield history - their resources, the 
surprises, the struggles and, of course, their triumphs. Colwell has recently completed a history of our Northfield Public Library; Hvistendahl has written and published several local histories, as have Weinmann's students.  Books will be on sale.  Refreshments will be free.  All are welcome!
