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.

Friends Annual Meeting Set For September 30

Join us at 2:00 on Sunday, September 30 at the Library to "Celebrate Our Foundations" - founding members and the establishment of the permanent endowment! 

Friends Meet Goal! Raise $28,900 for Permanent Endowment!

Many, many thanks to all those who contributed to the Friends for the establishment of the endowment! 

The permanent endowment allows the Friends to achieve these three critical goals:

  • Enable the Library's many friends to establish a permanent legacy that will benefit the Library in perpetuity;
  • Increase the Friends' capacity to support Library initiatives from year to year, through an additional, regular source of income;
  • Allow the Friends to manage these resources responsibly and in ways that help the endowment grow over time.

The Friends will continue to raise money for both ongoing library programs and to grow the endowment.

Look for the orange-and-blue book bike and trailer at numerous events this summer, including the Riverwalk Market Fair beginning Saturday, June 2, 2018!
