The Northfield Public Library has been providing Northfielders a place to read, chat quietly and learn for more than 100 years.
Founded in 1898, the library has called its current building, the Carnegie building, home for the past 100 years and celebrated that milestone in 2010.
Located on the north end of downtown, the library has adapted through the years and now gives users access to books, audiobooks, music, movies and the Internet. The library also provides research databases and resources for job seekers.
